Artist's Statement:  
I paint people, animals and symbolic objects within their environment to capture their 
journeys and life experiences. 
To complement the traditional style of my subjects I use oil paints on a foundation of canvas or linen. 
By choosing subjects from life or my imagination, often a combination of both, I seek out the substance
that often lays beneath the surface of my subjects. My goal is to expose the essence of excitement,
emotion and the pain that is daily life.
