self portrait

Welcome to my website.  I hope you enjoy my work.  I paint landscapes, portraits, the figure as well as still life images.  You will note that I work primarily in the realist tradition but also take inspiration from impressionism.  I am interested in the of the beauty of nature, coupled with the poignancy created by the impermanence of this natural world.  There seems to be a powerful emotional connection between nature and our innate sensibilities so I take much of my inspiration from her.
