I am a representational painter who prefers the alla prima method of classical painting. Oil painting brings me such joy and is an extension of who I am. The color of light and the beauty of nature are a constant source of inspiration for me. Oil is my medium of choice because I enjoy the richness and viscosity of the paint - the variations achieved from thick impasto applied with a palette knife to thin delicate layers of color. I have a particular affinity for floral still lifes and these painting evolve with each brushstroke, starting with the composition and capturing the essence of light on each petal. My goal is to capture precious moments in time and provide a sense of delight for the viewer.
