Adding drama and mystery through the use of powerful lighting effects, reflected surfaces, exaggerated contrasts and unusual compositions, I strive to transform simple, everyday life into un-ordinary, not-so-still life. I like to take an ordinary subject and enhance the perception of it, invite the viewer to take a closer look. Like a kid in a candy store I want to paint everything I see. But, what excites me the most is painting large florals. They flow off my brushes effortlessly bringing me great joy. Every day I wake up looking forward to discovering what will magically materialize on my canvas. Loving what you do truly makes life grand.
