Everywhere I look, I see a painting. I have a great appreciation for the light, texture, and geometry that occur in nature and in life. All places, people, and things have inherent beauty. A rustic old truck, desolate place, or busy main street can emit peace, beauty, and a sense of place. Capturing the light, texture, and geometry of everyday life is my artistic ambition.
I paint with a palette knife because it gives me the opportunity to interact with paint in a very tactile, expressionistic way. Each viewer of my art is able to gain a strong sense my physical interaction with the paint, with each stroke and manipulation visible forever. The surfaces of my paintings are very telling, sometimes resembling a mosaic of palette knife strokes. Being blessed with an unusual first name allows me to sign my work with my given name.
