I live life through my painter’s eyes. Painting is omnipresent in my thoughts and actions, one life not enough to capture what inspires me. As a former soldier, I have witnessed the best and worst of humanity, and I am enthralled by the human animal, its stubbornly consistent spirit, timelessly emotional conditions, and boundless environments.
My paintings build humbly on works of traditional painters laid down through millennium. I want to tell timeless stories with my pictures and leave them to the collective whole of works done before me. I am classically trained, painting in a contemporary representational style. I am inspired by the traditional, technical skills and compositions of masters and great representational painters working today.
A moto —"every day, in the paint.” Inspired by this, I deepen my knowledge and perfect my skills daily. Ultimately, I seek to not simply make pictures but to paint masterpieces recognizing that if I render but one, I will have succeeded as a painter.
