About the Artist
Living near the ocean in Florida, I find that I paint mostly seascapes and landscapes. However, I generally include architectural elements in my oil paintings. I have a fascination with bridges, bungalows and boats. It’s something about the geometry of the structure that captures my eye. I am also drawn to portrait painting, which I do on commission.
My most recent passion is marbled paper cuttings. I study the marbled paper and some shape or line speaks to me and I start cutting. I piece together landscapes, seascapes, even spacescapes. Add in a small black silhouette and it all becomes real.
I began my art studies formally in 2004 in a series of graduate painting classes through Virginia Commonwealth University. I would have to say, however, that my father was my greatest influence. He taught me to draw and mix colors before I could read. I had some of the most outrageous coloring books.
