    About the artist

    When I was a young painter I painted out of passion. This passion led to discipline and discipline has led to inspiration. I get inspired by what I see. I cannot paint without having some sort of subject and that subject can be the same thing over and over again. In the visual world there are infinite variables to explore. I use photography and visual lessons acquired from my forty plus years at my craft. By using photographs I am free to paint almost anything but I like to keep it within my own reference point of experience so that I can see deeper into my subject than the camera allows.

    I use tempera because it is a very responsive medium and I like the vibrant color it has. I use it in a similar way that oil paints are used. That is, I will apply it thick and use broad brushwork as well as tiny detailing. Having my work on the Internet gives me a chance to share it. The art on this site may or may not be available for sale. You can contact me for inquires through the email link. I hope you enjoyed the exhibit. Thank you.
