I paint primarily in oils on linen canvas.
My style is not limited, and although my work is realistic and representative in nature, I do also move to expressionistic work as the mood takes me.
Subject matter is likewise not limited, although wildlife has been a focus and the dominant theme throughout my life.
As with many artists I would hope that viewers are moved enough to interpret my paintings with a direct connection to their own life experience.
In addition to being inspired by a number of the old masters, more contemporary artists that I appreciate include John Singer Sargent, Bo Bartlett, Andrew Wyeth, Odd Nerdrum, Knut Andre Vikshaland, Vincent Desiderio and Antonio Lopez Garcia.
"Great artists suggest possibilities. They don't answer the question, ever. Joe Pro will give you the answer. My favourite artists are those that suggest the answer, because they know that there is no answer". Vincent Desiderio
