The world is my oyster - why not paint it!

Personal Interests
People often ask me: Why paint oyster shells: Living in New Orleans, it began with the BP Oil Spill. More and more attention was given on the Gulf and the dangers our seafood industry was to face. I used oil from the actual spill and created my first oyster painting. Rooting through the shells, I noticed every shell is like a fingerprint - - totally unique. Each painting makes me think something new and every painting becomes its own.
I paint from life. My work is based on direct observation and meditation through the interaction of space, light, and form. I paint the figure, still life, landscape, and abstract.
