Over the years I have developed a style that is based in the traditions of American realism. My work blends respect for classical structure with the unexpected intimacies of naturalism. I am a story teller who allows the viewer into the everyday world of the artist. I am always conscious of a deep respect for the dignity of the people and even the objects that I am painting. I am seeking to paint both the harmonies and the disharmonies that the figures and the still lives have with the interiors they inhabit.
