STYLE: My work is primarily representational.
MOST INTERESTING THING ABOUT THE WAY YOU WORK: I would say it is my brushwork. The application of paint can always say a great deal about an artist’s work.
SECOND-CHOICE CAREER: I have always enjoyed ancient history. At one point I was considering pursuing a Ph.D. in history.
BEST ADVICE RECEIVED: The artist and teacher John F. Carlson said in his landscape book, “In art, intentions have no place, only results.” These words have had a profound impact on my work.
