Fine Art Painting & Drawing

Cincopa WordPress plugin


Painting to me is a very emotional and visceral art form. It has always been connected to the natural environment around me, my interpretation of it and reaction to it. There is a strong attachment and feeling of being a small part of it. This is cliché but I am interested in the cycle of how the natural world changes, grows, dies and evolves. In a world that is so technology driven it is more important then ever to remind people that we are a part of this natural world. I want people to see the uncommon view point, the unexpected and at times what people might take for granted. The painting is usually achieved with oil paint on a variety of surfaces from canvas to found surfaces. I like the feel of a medium that can be thick or thinned, layered, glazed and worked over time. Stylistically my work is part impressionistic, expressionistic and realistic. It is a style of movement and action with the process of attacking the surface so important. I have been told my work is about energy and movement even when using a more realistic approach. My drawings are very similar in approach and subject matter as my paintings. They range from using graphite to mixed media and on all types of surfaces. The size of my work can range from very small to very large up to murals in scope. With both medium I let the work evolve and change.
