Multi-talented as a portrait painter, classical still life painter, interior designer, travel expert, and collector of antiques and interesting collectibles, I bring together these passions and talents in my figurative portraits and still life paintings. Incorporating one or more of my interesting collectible pieces, my still life paintings reflect a mood and feeling with lush pattern backgrounds, vivid color, and unusual combination of supports and collectible items. Visits to many international locations also serve as inspiration for my paintings.
Humanitarianism combined with a love of people inspire my pastel portraits and pencil portrait. There is a depth of beauty in every face that reflects an inner soul. Capturing the inner soul is a an inborn ability for me that is reflected in my representational and expressive portrait paintings. My travel all over Europe, the South Pacific, Canada, the Caribbean, South America, Africa, and Alaska has served to inspire my still life, portrait, and figurative work.
I work from my home studio located in Germantown, Maryland.
