Life is hectic, and it's easy to succumb to the grind of our daily routine. I push back by giving attention to the beautiful and sometimes strange aspects of our existence and collective imagination. I enjoy the struggle, and brief satisfaction as I finish each new piece of artwork.

I bring surreal, fantastic and sometimes even mundane scenes to life using traditional art materials.

My projects start with a detailed pencil drawing, and then I execute the final artwork using the highest quality oil paint. I use paint brushes of all sizes, as well as palette knives, to achieve the final illusion.
