Painting allows me to connect with the things and people that I enjoy in nature and my surroundings. I prefer subject matter that brings back pleasant experiences such as a child at play, a plate of rich dessert or people just doing everyday things. Oils provide a richness that bring my subjects to life. I use a wide spectrum of color in my palette that gives my work a subtle luminosity. Portrait painting is one of my passions and I love bringing someone to life on my canvas.
