In my artistic journey, subjects unfold organically in my mind's exploration for inspiration, appearing unexpectedly.

 

Working with oils and watercolors, I'm captivated by the native landscapes of NJ, Maine, and Pennsylvania. A profound appreciation for still life emerged after encountering the impressionists paintings as a young artist, fueling my enduring passion for the genre.

 

Each stroke captures the essence of moments discovered in the uncharted territories of my creative wanderings.
