I work to combine traditional techniques with a bold, contemporary eye for color and composition. I have developed my style over the past 10 years, dividing my creative efforts between a full-time career in the advertising industry and building up my painting portfolio. I count Edward Hopper, The French Impressionists, The Taos Painters and a variety of contemporary artists including Robert Daughters and Georges Coulomb as influences.
