From my studio in Chicago I create oil paintings with strong charcoal and pencil accents to emphasize the quality of the line. I customize for clients all over the world. I love to work on paintings for specific environments including homes and public spaces. I work with clients and designers on specific projects as well as selling completed works individually to collectors.
The medium of the paintings are oil paint, charcoal and graphite. Each piece, whether figurative or abstract, tells a story over time. In my mind, the layers of materials and returning in the creation process end up showing through the work as a story. There is an essential solitary quality to painting and drawing, these works attempt to capture that quality and the tonality is often muted to capture the natural and solitary quality of the process of making art.
I love to work with clients whose sense of design and environment matches the quality of my works.
