Artist’s Statement:

My paintings explore subjects that have personal meaning to me.  Many of the compositions contain objects from my collections and my family's past. Depicted interiors are memorable places from my past.  Animals are my pets.

I like to paint narrative scenes where I've started the composition from a photograph merely as a jumping off point. Some of the paintings are pure automatics with just a palette of paint that needed to be used and are developed randomly. Directive titles have been created to help with insight on how the painting developed.
