Don't wait. Live now!


Since 1996 I have created over 100 paintings. During this time I have tried different styles and techniques. These include landscapes, wildlife, portrait, mixed media, and abstract. I paint with the "wet-on-wet" technique as there is no drying time in between all stages of the painting.
On average it takes anywhere from 1 hour to 18 hours to paint a painting (depending on canvas size). Once I start a painting I continue until it is finished which sometimes means a 24 hour marathon. If I know that a painting cannot be completed in less than 24 hours (such as portraits, wildlife and very large landscapes)I will paint over a few days. Most of my landscape paintings have been painted from a virtual mind picture, but recently I have started painting from pictures to reproduce memorable places on canvas.
Photography is another way of expression and capturing moments that will pass into history. I take pride in taking photos that will bring out the best in a subject. Taking photos of people, nature, architecture, and close ups of objects has always been a great passion. I never leave the house without a camera.
What's the best thing than combining two things that you love? Travel and photography go hand in hand. Please check the Travel section for pictures and details of my trips.
