I paint from life. My work is based on direct observation and meditation through the interaction of space, light, and form. I paint the figure, still life, landscape, and abstract.
My work is rooted in the tradition of drawing and painting. I have studied with modern impressionists, modern figurative sculptors, and classical realists. I primarily studied with Auseklis Ozols, the director and founder of the New Orleans Academy of Fine Arts and master realist painter.
