* One of my still life paintings will be included in the Freeport Art Museum's Regional Juried Exhibition 14. The museum is located in Freeport, Illinois. The show will be open from November 17, 2017 until February 10, 2018. 

Welcome to my website. I am an artist working mainly with oil paint. The paintings here are best described as non-narrative contemporary realism, which is to say there are no stories in these pictures. Here you will find portraits, figures, still life and landscapes -- traditional genres of fine art -- done in non-traditional ways. I love all kinds of painting, especially traditional modes and I want to extend these genres, keeping them vital by employing techniques, devices and materials introduced in the 20th and 21st centuries by cubism, abstract expressionism, pop art and digital technology as well as my own inventions.
