I have discovered something magical about city streets and weather. The reflection of car lights and traffic signals on a rainy day, the blurry silhouettes of buildings when the streets are snow-covered, the endless play of light and weather — these elements dominate my art.
My primary medium is oil and I paint fluid and rough strokes with both brush and palette knife, using a limited color palette that’s intended to be evocative. My main intent is not to capture the physical reality of a scene, but to express my own moods and feelings, as well as to trigger personal memories and emotions in my audience as they form their own interpretation of each piece.
