Purchase Your Art

Original people deserve original art.  I look at paintings and ask myself, 'if the lines were taken away, would I still recognize it?'  Yes, I would.  If I were to remove the color, would I still appreciate it?  Probably not.  Therefore, my focus is color. 

Experience has taught me perfection lies in imperfection.  All the beauty of nature lies in her imperfect symmetry.  Lines are blurred, edges soften, and colors speak.   Each medium has its unique effects.  I like to dabble in those capable of making their own statements through the subject matter.
