    As a still life oil painter I often paint pottery, copper, or other types of vessels using the palette knife. My works showcase a vibrant, classic style often contrasting a vintage piece with something fresh.

    I enjoy a challenge, and for me the challenge begins with the set up followed by problem solving along the way, finding my answers in paint.

    Judge's Comment: “This lovely still life painting succeeds on several levels. It is delightfully painterly but with plenty of thoughtfully rendered detail for the effect of realism. Balanced elements within a confined space give the illusion of filtered light and depth; there is pleasing use of complimentary color, with attention to color matching true to the scene and intentional variation of edges, sharp and focused to soft and receding.”
