Art Medium: painting
Technique: Traditional oil painting achieved with luminous glazing effects

A Realist Figurative Artist, with an emphasis on primarily the idealized physicality of male identity, expressing tactile sensuousness of figures positioned in luminous, atmospheric space. I seek to celebrate the sometimes frank but not transgressive disposition of light on form and flesh. I have been strongly inspired by broad spectrum of artistic influences - Paul Cadmus, Lucien Freud, Jared French, Jan Vermeer, George Tooker, Eric Fischl, Caravaggio, Botticelli and Piero Della Francesca to name a few.

I live and work in North Scottsdale, Arizona, where the natural desert terrain presents deep, sweeping views into the infinite recesses coupled with unparalleled light - which all filters into my work.
