As an artist who is both an oil painter and a photographer, I find inspiration in the beauty of the natural world. Whether a brush in hand or a camera, nature evokes in me a certain reverence, making the creative process not only a contemplative quest, but a journey of personal joy and fulfillment.
In a style that ranges from classical realism to impressionism in the colorist tradition, the genre of my paintings extends from still life and landscape to portraits and figures. In photography, one can find not only scenery and landscape, but also nature and wildlife.
The creative endeavors of both painting and photography allow me the opportunity to share my artistic vision with others -- a visual dialogue that completes the creative process and a privilege for which I remain ever grateful.
