Reflect yourself in art.

 I strive to create works that are approachable, with a deeper meaning to peel back and uncover over time, like a story.

With my paintings, I strive to create a parallel sense of the present and the

eternal inviting the viewer into intimate questions of self.

Creating art is a continual process of moving forward,

pulling back & looking for the whole story.

In His Hands 

 Be pulled through a journey of introspection, building with wordsand graphic image

The New You

 Art can reveal from the inside out 

Pierced and Abandoned 

 Passion portrayed in a new way

The building of art is an organic method that allows looking inward for meaning.

Embracing the tools of metaphor, icon, and word are the grammar elements for my work.

Hover  80"x 38"    Image revealed by sanding it out of an acrylic stained birch panel 

I am intrigued with letting the materials help determine the process and tell a story.

This organic method allows me to look inward for meaning, embracing the tools of metaphor, icon, symbol, and words.

The ebb and flow of reduction with addition is at the core of my inspiration.

This tension compels me to bring image and spirit to life through painting.

 Many of my works are constructs, building visual concepts with materials like oil on plaster, wood, copper, & glass.

That He May Lift You Up  53"x 56".   Acrylic's were mixed with glaze & plaster onto stretched canvas

By deconstructing themes larger than ourselves, the work communicates something deeper than the material world around us.

I enjoy creating works that are approachable, with meaning to peel back and uncover over time. 

Leeward   96"x 84"    Oil, glaze, and plaster onto a mahogany veneered wood panel  

Art has taught me that life is not always about what we

bring, contribute, or add.

Often, it’s what we take away, or don't say, that makes a moment sublime.
