68″x64″ mixed media on canvas, titled Jenna, in the studio. Bigger is definitely better and more fun. This charming, clever gal makes a terrific addition to any space, forming a witty backdrop to conversation and creativity. Contact the artist for purchase.
I like the way this painting tackles the feeling of a man perfectly adapted to his surroundings, fully at ease and intent on his business, dealing with whatever needs to be accomplished despite or because of the weather. It exemplifies the spirit of individuals who are confident and capable — self-actualized. Qualities I greatly admire.
Just completed this fun painting. I love the feeling of it. The model exudes confidence and has the aura of a risk taker who can be relied upon without fail. Part of my new Arctic series, this artwork captures the dichotomy between isolation and camaraderie, which is also the essence of adventure in the North, and of being at ease in one’s surroundings.
Proud to display Sylvie, above, in the studio after this summer’s exhibition at CATO Institute’s “Freedom: Art as the Messenger” in Washington, DC. Bold, stark, and arresting, Sylvie commands attention in a thoughtful way, open to many and varied interpretation. While minimal in execution, it’s packed with potential in terms of content. It looks great on any wall. Contact me for purchase. Cheers
Just completed and available in the studio. Sized 36×36 inches, Raul appears enigmatic with eyes that have much to say if only we could interpret them. This kind of painting thrills me with its ambiguity and arresting quality. It makes one think. It’s not just pretty wallpaper.
Newly completed and available in my Virginia studio. Contact me directly – email@example.com

Very honored to have two of my paintings selected for the prestigious City of Overland Park, KS, National Juried Exhibition. Rafe, above, one of the selected works, is a wonderfully expressive painting that defines the fast pace of contemporary life and would look terrific either in the office or at home. It makes me think! And, it seems to emanate both energy and wit, in addition to sporting a color palette that works with any wall.
Many thanks to the talented artist Johne Richardson who served as guest juror for the exhibition.
These are two paintings from my new series of figures showing women striking the same pose. It proved to be a fun and challenging project. Completely out of my imagination, the figures more than fill the space of the canvas. They’re pink, purple, white, and black with bright-colored backgrounds. By adopting a confident, casual pose each figure exudes energy, independence and freedom. I like the feel of these paintings. They’re diverse, yet similar. They’re bold, yet not in your face. They seem to be celebrating both uniqueness and commonality — appealing concepts for all people.
Corrected Vision 7, 24×24 inches acrylic on canvas, above, has been selected for the collection of Washington, DC via a grant from the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities. I’m honored for this delightful piece to have been chosen from among the many applicants.
