The next potential subject of my artwork could be right around
the corner or under my nose. I’m always ready to snap a photo
when something catches my eye. Ordinary places or things can
spark the creative desire to interpret the inherent personality of
the chosen subject. Rather than paint a realistic depiction just
for the sake of realism, the intent is to bring out the essence of
the subject through detail and texture. I love it when people ask
“Is that a photograph?”. However the goal is not simply to draw
accurate reproductions of photos, but to move the subject
beyond what most people see.
I don’t paint sofa art. My work is more of an intimate experience
bringing the viewer in close to discover the many details and
sometimes fun little surprises that are the mainstay of my work.
I try to get the viewer to keep coming back to discover
something new each time they look at the piece. I want them to
see the world as I see it, up close and personal. I welcome you
to “my” world.
