I am interested in surface textures and creating paintings that portray them in realistic detail. Hopefully, a viewer will feel they can run a hand over the feathers and moss, or grasp an object in the painting.

This detail is usually composed in an abstract design. The design can occur naturally or be arranged by me.

The subjects of my paintings are usually based on the patterns and textures of nature and human interaction with nature. I have found subjects to paint in remote wilderness areas of the world, local parking lots, and my own backyard.
