Art is about discovery. Skillfully executed, my paintings are clearly defined by classical instruction. I am just as fond of the developmental processes as I am with the end result. This diligence in preparation, peppered with my imagination, allows for open-ended flexibility. The Muse is fueled with preparatory sketching and research, resulting in an exploration and exclamation much like my personal journey. My canvases are filled with past experiences and interests, infused with a strong sense of whimsy.
