The Artist Says:

As an impressionist painter I’m more interested in playing with the visual elements of line, shape value, edge, texture and color than in aiming for some kind of exactness. I like the potential for mystery and the room for intuition to play a big part in the painting process.
I’m influenced by both the French and American Impressionists as well as artists like Antonio Mancini and Nicoli Fechin, and have learned so much from so many contemporary painters.
