Order Over Chaos
I am primarily an oil painter working from life and photographs. My interests include landscape, still life, and most recently, portraits of people and animals. A secondary interest is painting religious Icons in egg tempera. The symbolism and metaphors expressed in Icons give the work a deeper meaning and a connection to life and understanding oneself. I look for these same characteristics in my other work when possible. When I am not painting in my studio, I paint En Plein Air. I travel to and stay in Monasteries in the Southwest and paint the local landscapes. My style is narrative and realistic.
