I paint because I have a passion to do so. That passion began in early childhood and continues to grow to this day. I love everything about it...the creative process, the ability to express emotions, the blending of color and the smell of paint. I can't imagine a world without it. It is who I am and what I do.
The subject matter of my paintings ranges from contemporary cityscapes and landscapes to contemplative figure studies. They are a chronicle of both my life experience and my imagination. My style of painting is realism and my technique has been called "photo-impressionistic". Perspective, depth and value are key components of my work, as well as the use of color to create the illusion of light to set the mood of the piece.
I live in the Metroplex area, working full time as a painter. I earned my BFA from The Laguna College of Art and Design. My hope is that I'll be accepted into a master's program in the future. My commissioned works include landscapes, portraits and murals....
