My own artistic practice is informed by drawing daily and keeping my sketchbook handy wherever I go. While I enjoy recreational photography, I prefer to sketch when travelling. Sketching is a great way to learn about your environment and commit images to memory. I sketch from life and from those sketches create paintings that are representational, yet whimsical, realistic, yet somewhat abstracted. Figures are oversized, elongated; perspective may be skewed; flat design is an excuse to emphasize pattern, texture, color, and repetition. Feel free to browse my galleries to learn more about my art.
