Design Philosophy


I have been drawing and painting since I was a child. The priviledge to make a living as artist gives me a profound sense of fullfilment everyday. The only thing more gratifying than doing the artwork is watching the joy other people get from my art.

One aspect about painting murals I truly enjoy is the range of ideas and images I am commissioned to paint. Where one project is recreating Renaissance figures from 500 years ago, the next may be an undersea world of colorful marine life. People & trees, turtles & spaceships... what makes a thing a thing is what I believe makes an artist an artist; the distinct way we each observe and catch the color, render the texture, capture the likeness.

Nature has gone to great lengths to provide artists with subject matter and as artists I believe we should go to great lengths when we reflect that nature with art.
