Artist Statement

Painter by nature. Regionalist. Realist. Primarily figurative.

I work closely with my models to understand them as participants in the human condition and to see the world through their eyes as I work with them.

All of my work is created using the only the finest archival materials. The formula that I've created for my oil painting medium uses no dammar resin or varnish, ensuring that removing and replacing any final varnish will cause no harm to the painting. The materials that I use and techniques that I employ have all thoroughly researched and approved by AMIEN: The Art Materials Information and Education Network.
