I interpret what I view in a contemporary style. Color and light are important fundamentals in my work as they evoke the mood and style of the subject matter.  My goal is to draw the viewer into the painting by creating a story or facet of mystery through these elements. Often my work queries "Where am I" that begs for interpretation and exploration through the viewer's experiences. Color is used to challenge the viewer to think beyond what is real, what is not and what could be.

Old structures such as barns, icehouses, or abandoned properties are of great interest. Many have withstood the test of time yet are often neglected or forgotten. Through color, I explore what the buildings might become or might have been, a metaphor for all.
