Painting strictly from life, I use the finest pigments and oils available in the traditional Dutch style of applying layer upon layer upon layer of paint to achieve a life-like quality.
Drawing inspiration from nature, I seek to incorporate the intimate and sensual nuances of light that I find there into my rich and luminous still lifes.
That talent, combined with craftsmanship and love will produce a masterpiece that will stand the test of time.
