About

Oil on canvas panel: Cardinal

My goal as an artist is to create paintings that show my love of nature and animals while capturing the emotion of my subjects. I consciously reduce details, keeping my brushstrokes loose and impressionistic, allowing the viewer a more personal interpretation of the image. Some paintings have colorful, abstract backgrounds that blend into the subject without the distraction of exact forms. Every painting is different and begs for a different approach. At times I use a disrupted-realism style where the subject of the painting gets deconstructed in areas resulting in an expressive and captivating painting. It is more important to me that a painting is compelling rather than true to reality. Much of my inspiration comes from the rural areas that I visit in Western Loudoun County as well as my travels to other countries.
