I use design and color to push realistic subjects just a bit to the abstract. This can be seen in my work as a balance of control and flexibility. Texture adds a punch as do subject matters. Artist are often told paint what you love...where your passion lies. I love food, libations, gardening and am a wanderlust. Travel experiences often get attention with a bit of humor tossed in the piece.Visiting artist exhibiting at Margaret McGinnis.
