For me, painting is a spiritual experience. The world has an unending array of nature’s beauty. God has put all this beauty here for our enjoyment. The Creator has also gifted certain people with an ability of expressing what they see into an artistic experience. I’ve been blessed to received this gift of artistic expression and have chosen oil and canvas as my voice. This is not a gift I take lightly. It is a responsibility and a great privilege to honor God by bringing His creation
My works are mostly landscapes done by combining a slightly tighter impressionism with a luminist style (similar to Hudson River) utilizing a very warm, tonal pallet. The results is a warm, inviting and mysterious place you will want to explore for some time.
My price point is such that my works are affordable for the novice collector with a quality the most discriminating collectors enjoy.
