Working in pen and ink, oils, watercolor and pastels, I try to portray culturally interesting, as well as intriguing landscapes and found still life images. Many of my subjects were discovered while touring North America by motorcycle, allowing me to absorb the atmosphere and subtle nuances of an area, unencumbered and unfiltered by steel and glass.
Working in a variety of mediums, I feel the challenge of mastering each one requires the artist to look at his subject in a different way each time. This new vision offers the artist additional insight into the subject and his work.
I feel this energy keeps the work fresh and new, and you never feel that there is nothing left to discover about your artistic vision.
