I am an artist.  That is how I define who I am -- a painter, a
watercolor artist.  Making art is my means of self-expression and
self-fulfillment.  I love to paint a variety of subjects including people,
things and landmark locations.  Each painting I create allows me to
relive an experience and to reconceive that experience from a new
perspective.

My process starts by considering a moment in time.  From that
single moment there is a photograph, a composition, a sketch and
finally a painting.  I rely on the principles of design and the
watercolor medium to finish the process.  I paint in the same way an
author writes.  The author expresses himself through words so that
his thoughts and ideas will be discovered and enjoyed by the
reader.  Similarly, I use watercolor as my means of self-expression.  
I paint to create something entertaining and thought-provoking for
others to ponder and enjoy.

I follow my own creative voice when I paint.  I am inspired by such
artists as Andrew Wyeth and Leonardo Da Vinci who created
timeless masterpieces using their own individual styles and not
simply relying on the style in fashion at the time.  I enjoy painting
what appeals to me, and always with a touch of flash.  Collectors
and viewers have commented on the suggestively photographic
quality of my paintings as well as my use of interesting, bold
patterns and vivid colors.
