Artist’s Statement
I have been painting & drawing on and off for as long as I can remember.
Life, work & relaxation take precedence most of the time : ) but I try to carve out time for these artistic pursuits. Usually, I am capturing subject matter on my iPhone for use when time allows. I, occasionally, like to also draw “from life” (not from a photo) as it keeps observation skills sharp.

"You're soaking in it" is 11" x 14" oil on gessobord

I find boring ole everyday scenes interesting, challenging & ironically inspiring; lines on a highway, water running out of a faucet, my toothbrush, keys, houseplants…
