About the Artist
Today my subject matter centers on my love for the water. Living on the beach affords me with ample opportunity to experience the allure of the beachscape and surrounding area. Surfing brings this appreciation to an entirely new level; being able to interact directly with Nature. The materials I use, primarily oils, continue to vary depending on the character of expression.
In my work I hope to help the viewer see the beauty of what is. At the same time the fascination and hope of what I experience is solidified in my mind.
