Artist's Statement

Artist statement

I am a contemporary realist painter, and have been told my work is reminiscent of the old Dutch masters, with a modern element.  The works I have submitted include a mix of my still life and landscape paintings for your review. 

I draw inspiration from everyday objects and landscapes, where there is a colour, shape, texture, or a reflection that I need to explore. I usually take between two days to one week to complete a painting.  During the process, I constantly fight with the visual result I need to achieve for the viewer to understand my vision.
