Visual Art


I Create With Many Different Mediums.
My personal work tends toward dreamy abstraction or magical realism.
Im fascinated with water and reflections, and all the stories they can tell.
I often paint reflections of past civilizations or events.
Travel inspires me, though I never just copy my photographs.

Seeing my work in people's homes feels like a great honor,
because they found it interesting enough to live with.
Plus its fun to see how they've combined them with their
environment to tell their own stories.
