ON EXHIBITION

Egret 1 and Egret 2 Acrylics on Canvas both 48x48 inches or 122 cm x 122 cm are currently for sale and on display at the Hickory Furniture Mart in my hometown in N.C. USA. They are a continuation of my Carpe Diem series. Something about this series has me so excited! I have a hundred ideas and my heart races when I paint these....it's like being in love. I am slinging paint everywhere, just unleashing all this energy and they fall into place like magic.

ABOUT ME

I am a multi-disciplined artist. I love to experiment with various mediums and substrates. I have developed multiple unique and original series by endlessly exploring possibilities. Once I create a technique and look that I think has merit I will develop it into a series of 5 - 30 paintings. I may be painting abstracts for some time and then switch to realism. I may use acrylics then switch to oils or mix media. What I learn from one discipline I apply to the others and in this way I feel that I grow the most as an artist. Though I am constantly evolving I can easily go back and add seamlessly to any series. What you will find in viewing in my work are my experimental (one-offs) some of which may be developed in the future, certain consistent series, commissions, and some basic works spanning the last 30 years.

BIOGRAPHY
TECHNIQUE

I paint on metal, wood panels and canvas. I create my own panels and I cut and stretch my own canvases. I tend to work in larger sizes so I like being free to create my own substrate. I work in oils, acrylics, enamels, alkyds, and water miscible oils. I use airbrushes, traditional brushes, rollers, squeegees and anything else I deem suitable for creating art. I enjoy creating abstract work with elements of realism and often employ various materials and techniques to do so.
