Welcome to my website.  Drawing and painting has fascinated me since I was a kid.   As I got older I noticed that historically the progress of painting realistically was interrupted in the 1800’s by impressionism and again in the 1900’s by abstract painting.   In the early 70’s some of us young artists were captivated with  hyper-realism  and I've attempted to follow that course throughout my career.   Apart from simply making something look real I strive to express passion through  the use of dramatic color and composition.   Great art should stir the emotions and I'd like to think my paintings cause the viewers heart to beat just a little faster.





“Whatever you might do, work from the soul, as to the Lord.”
