ART FOR YOUR SPACE
More than 30 years experience in the fields of fine art, commercial art, and graphics. Works in oil, pastel, acrylics, pencil and charcoal. Current focus primarily on oils in impressionistic and semi-abstract styles. Can provide commissioned works for your home or business.
DIVERSE SUBJECTS & STYLES
Over the years, the artist has studied and produced works in a number of styles and mediums. Currently, his work is more impressionistic and/or semi-abstract, with rich colors and textured layers of oil paint. Commissioned paintings are all done with the understanding that the artist has complete liberty, though he may at times agree to a certain color palette or theme especially for art which will be displayed in public places.
