Welcome to the Main Gallery.
Please click on the thumbnails to view the paintings.

I explore painting in a classically realistic style from live observation. I most often work with "indirect", or layered, painting techniques.

I hope to pay homage to accumulated wisdom but I don't idealize the past. I feel I live in a culture obsessed with "the news" and what is new and what is next. By using classical realism as my mode of my expression I often feel I'm swimming upstream against this current, and I think it's good.

The brilliance and lasting power of traditional works that evince time in process and great ability inspire me and I appreciate the depth of meaning in art from a variety of eras, cultures, and styles. I see my own work as being concept driven.

I feel this is exactly the time in which I need to explore and address my world through art that evinces time and care and that holds to the transcendent, transportive, and illusory natures evoked in classical painting as in my life I am constantly having to ask what is real and what is of value.
