My Work

I began to document my thoughts using paint on wood panel and canvas in the mid 1990s.  The themes of my work are typically influenced by my life experiences.  I enjoy painting characters that are communicating with one and other, or single characters that are making an emotional statement.  Having the courage and determination to paint my most tragic experiences usually results in colorful, curious and relatable images.
