Artist Statement

I work mostly in oils, on canvas and on wood panels, and I call the style “ whimsical realism:” no models are used, everything is made up in my head and the colors are never quite what mother nature assigned to things. I would like to be able to paint mike J.M.W. Turner, and create like Salvador Dali.’
