Professional oil painter with broad knowledge of historic methods and colors. My studio is like a laboratory. I make paint from historic pigments, chemicals, organic dyes, minerals, and organic materials typically used in 15th- 19th century european painting.
My work focuses on elements of the earth: air and land. What I observe is beyond a pretty sky or nice landscape. It is the notion that our earth and the universe, are imbued with a specific energy. Historically, this energy was described by the Victorian poet Gerard Manley Hopkins as instress and inscape, derived from ideas of the medieval philosopher, Duns Scotus.
Scotus argued that there is some matter entirely devoid of form.
Paintings can vary from 9 x 12 inches to 6 x 8 feet. Viewers describe a profound feeling from the paintings, regardless of the size.
