My work is rooted in Art Spirit of Robert Henri, Modern Art of Matisse and Thomas Hart Benton. I am an American impressionist, who explores new ideas, methods and images unfettered with the bonds of conformity. Each of my paintings begins with a strong sense of the present holding true, from there, to the reason I was attracted to the subject. I build my image, choosing medium, method, color, values, and composition. My approach is direct with conscious strokes conveying what I want to communicate.
