Like most artists my art is constantly evolving.In the early days I was most in interested in creating a copy of the object. I did a lot of detailed sketching, portrait work, and took many many classes.

|the beginning of texture in the works|
|paved paradise, political art|
|texture mediums, starting to tell part of the story. circa 2011|
With time and experimentation this is where we are today, letting the shapes, texture and glazing of highly thinned liquid acrylic tell the story...
|finished work, note the inter play between the texture and glaze circa 2015|
I'm still a realist at heart but I've given over control of the paint to the texture that I painstakingly build, and let the story emerge from there. It's been quite a journey, and it's not over. Evolution continues. With each new painting I find better ways to communicate.
It will be interesting to see where I go from here!
