As a representational artist I consider my art to be an interpretation of what I observe around me. My work comprises of portraiture, still life, land and seascapes. My desire is to interpret the essence of what makes one unique. Whether I’m painting a portrait or a seascape en plein air, I find painting directly from life to never become boring. If I see the turn of a rosy cheek on a woman’s beautiful face or the vibrant mixtures of color that shapes a breaking wave, I feel a need to set them in paint.
