Working primarily in oils, I love to create detailed and realistic, yet often rather unexpected paintings of the world around me, usually in the hope of making some sense out of this little ramble I'm taking through life. 

 

Over the past few years I have been exploring themes that reflect on the transient nature of the things we love - a recurring pre-occupation that stems from both old and new losses. Though this is often what informs the direction of my art lately, it is usually tempered by a doggedly persistent hopefulness, resulting in paintings that always seem to end up just a touch surreal.
