I paint pretty peculiar still lifes. I work in oil paints on canvas, employing an unusual dry brush technique to capture small details.
Nature inspires me with the finds I discover in the woods, swamp, or ocean. I assemble these curios into fanciful new forms to paint. Feathers, bones, shells, and even the clouds overhead become shorthand for provocative and magical concepts. Small, delicate, and ethereal items in particular speak to me. I love to paint dewdrops, which represent the enchantment of a sparkling summer morning in the forest.
By combining inspiration and imagination, I hope to share my ideas with open-minded and open-hearted people.
