Every picture tells a story...my oil paintings style can be whimsical, mystical at times, realistic, spiritual or just be simply there. Being a continual daydreamer I am passionately attracted to nature, the notion of opposites–good, evil, dark and light, beautiful and serene and so on. There is always some sort of story (or hidden meaning) behind each painting in my mind. Sometimes it is difficult to put into words what the meaning of a piece is, but each painting is to speak for itself and have the viewer go away with his or her own thoughts about the piece. What the viewer thinks about my work is more important than the story I may give. Inspiration comes from nature, spirituality, calmness, poetry, and social issues.
