About My Art


I am often asked what I think about when I start a new piece, and the truth is that usually I’m not setting out to create something specific. I love just seeing where work takes me. 


I try not to give the paintings suggestive names which could alter the viewers perception. It is what you wish it to be. I truly hope you enjoy! 


Replicas of all my work are available for purchase, as well as many of the originals. I am also able to create unique, comissioned art work. 


Please contact me for more details.
