Artist Statement

I work in several different media and enjoy many artistic styles. I specialize in commissions for home and building renderings as well as portraiture. For pure enjoyment I love to paint landscapes, often en plein air. Most of my artwork is realistic, but I do have an abstract side as well, that often incorporates colorful geometrics over an image. Color and atmosphere are important elements for me and I continually challenge myself to translate what I see into an artistic form that can take the viewer to that place. I'm active in several arts groups in the area and am a board member of the Mid-Atlantic Plein Air Painters Association. I share my love of art through several venues. I am an adjunct faculty arts instructor for the Anne Arundel Community College, I offer classes through the Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts and also teach privately.
