My roots and formal training are in graphic design. I was an owner and creative director of a successful Washington, DC-based ad agency for many years. While I still enjoy working as a graphic designer, I have truly enjoyed returning to my love of paint and painting.
My paintings are about the moment, the immediacy of paint applied honestly, thickly and emotionally on canvas. I strive to convey a textural quality to the surface with layers of color and an emphasis on capturing light. I have always loved to spend time outside and plein air painting has been a perfect match to painting in the moment and spending time outdoors.
Thank you for taking the moment to experience my work.
