Oil paintings: Contemporary realism in style with a focus on still life.
My still life paintings are about finding the beauty in everyday objects.
The most interesting part of the painting process to me is the composition or design phase. The beauty of still life is that I am the conductor. I move the objects around until I see an arrangement that is pleasing and dynamic to the eye. I look for relationships of shape, color, contrasts of light & dark and what is to be the center of interest. My paintings are strong in design and color and bring life and energy to a room.
