The Artist Says:

Working as a photorealist, my acrylic paintings express the essence of the automobile’s design. The paintings are an interpretation of the correlation of shadows and reflected images on the painted and chrome surfaces of the vehicles. I enjoy creating works that show the ability of chrome to transform objects into surreal images.



I am an award winning and published artist who lives in La Grange, Texas, and a member of the LUSTER Traveling Museum Exhibit of Realistic and Hyperrealistic Contemporary Automobile and Motorcycle paintings. 
Recognized for my photorealistic acrylic paintings of automobiles, my goal is to create the illusion of depth on a two dimensional surface. 
After a 35 year hiatus from painting, I rekindled my passion for painting and my love of acrylic paints. They are like an old friend of 50 plus years. Having been an abstract painter prior to my hiatus, I learned the value of composition and juxtaposing values. To say that my work is tight is to make an understatement. I strive for precision in my paintings. As a former drafting and photography teacher,  I know the value of the line and of shadows. My work is classical in nature although contemporary in subject matter. I still use an underpainting process followed by multiple layers of transparent colors.
I am a graduate of Texas State University with a BS in Commercial Art with post graduate work in Art Education. As an active member in the International Guild Of Realism, I have been juried into the 12th, 13th, and 14th Annual International Juried Exhibitions.
