More About This Creator


What is your favorite material to work with?

"Acrylic paints, stretched canvas. For very small pieces I’ll use just the stinger from a bumble bee. For larger pieces I will use an entire side of one of my dogs in order to get just the right texture and movement."

What do you want people to do or feel when they encounter your creations?

"To hear what people see in my abstract paintings whether its George Washington from the one dollar bill or a yawning baby or a woman turning her head away quickly, captured in a moment. But its wonderful to have people share the images they see in my work. It turns these pieces into a part of a conversation and sometimes a view into a facet of the viewers life."
