This collection reflects work completed since 2009.
I believe - that Art, in all its forms, exists to enrich our lives. Loving it, should be why it comes into our environment.
Welcome! A little background.. I began painting with oil at 15, with some trepidation and a lot of encouragement from my teachers Sr. M. Lucia, and William Whitsett. At the age of 18, I received my first portrait commission which launched my life as a professional artist. I never looked back. Since that time, my career has taken many paths, but oil paint has always been the medium most interesting to me, and still is.
Within this site, you will find information to make an informed decision about becoming a collector of my work. I am currently represented by Martin Gallery in Charleston, SC, and Stanek Gallery in Philadelphia, PA. The pop up with each painting will let you know where each piece can be acquired.
I invite you to spend some time here; not only in studying the art, but also what goes on behind the scenes. 2 beautiful short films were made, one by Jeff Dolan, and the other, Jerry Mann. You will find them, along with more information about my painting methods, and the opportunity to discuss your own work with me through the Intuitive Process page. Please have a look.
My art making is centered around several themes: equanimity, change, assurance, timelessness, mystery. The single figure is the anchor, the multiple layers of energetic paint application a reflection of our times and a way into a conversation that is felt, rather than explained.
Thanks for visiting.
