Painting in oil is a distinct privilege and pleasure for me. Although I love creating in various different mediums, and I don't think I could ever limit myself just to one, I believe that painting in oil brings out the best of me as an artist - it allows me to be deliberate and maintain control at all times, but it pushes me to be less perfectionistic and more expressive and inventive.
Lately, I challenge myself to stray a bit farther from realism - to be daring with my brushstrokes and clever with my colors, layers, textures... I'm concerned with capturing a feeling, mood, energy, aura, atmosphere... I paint to create an impression and to show my viewers the undercurrent of a scene.
Throughout the genres and subjects below, there are works that were inspired by my inner voice and works that were commissioned by dear clients who entrusted me with their visions. I hope you see that my personal style persists and rings clearly in all of them. When I create an artwork, I smear and blend a part of myself in with the paints, and when you purchase my pieces you are actually evaluating and appreciating a part of me.
Some of the paintings below are available for purchase (look out for the red font) but most are sold and act as a display of my capabilities. If you are inspired by one of my previous works, or you believe I am the artist to create your next statement piece, reach out to me! I will happily discuss your preferences, share my insights, and help you commission a personalized painting that is guaranteed to leave you impressed and satisfied.
