"My paintings are meant to transport the viewer to another place in time - to capture the mellow richness and natural beauty of the seasides and countrysides around the world."

"My work documents the ambiance and daily experiences of various locales, through paintings that radiate with intense color and warmth. I look for the peaceful serenity which many coastal and harbor scenes afford, suggesting a simpler, calmer time, perhaps many generations ago. I love to capture the realistic images of a colorful row of buildings, or a singular, weather-beaten fishing boat and the reflections that randomly - or very exactly - dance back off the water."
