Biography


Thank you for visiting my website!  As an art collector, you know the enjoyment living with a beautiful painting can bring.  Whatever memory or emotion a painting elicits makes it a joy to behold; and a well chosen work of art can give years of enjoyment.  In my landscapes, I strive to capture an emotion or truth of a place. If I am true in my rendering, then my painting will achieve a universal truth.
