My painting style is based on techniques used by modern classical realists. However, my subjects are taken from the present-day, not the Neoclassical Period. I am interested in creating naturalistic images from everyday life with themes ranging from the landscape to the still-life to the figurative including portraiture. I work in oil, watercolor, egg tempera, and acrylic.
The subjects of my sculpture portray my long-term interests. To earn the money to support my art I have worked for many years in the arena of environmental sciences -- principally water quality. Coupled with that pursuit has been a lifelong fascination with the fauna living in and around and also dependent on water. For the past several years, my sculptural work has focused on the waterbirds inhabiting Florida's wetlands. My interest is in creating naturalistic impressions of those magnificent creatures. I work in mild and stainless steel, bronze, and copper.
