"It is not horses that I paint; I paint the way they make me feel."
I paint expansive, provocative horses in a signature style.
Horses express a big energy, and that is what I love to paint.
Defining classic equines in contemporary mixed media, I am an artist specializing in different mediums (ie., oil painting, acrylics, pencils, pastels, watercolor, spray, etc) in a modern palette and technique.
As a painter I feel that clean, gestural work articulates the simplicity of what is beautiful.
What gives my work its edge is a deep personal familiarity with the physical horse .... and a sense that the movement is bigger than what you see.
Fine art has taken me into the world of Live Painting, wherein I create an original piece of art during a high-profile event, gala or fundraiser, in support of a variety of charity issues about which I am passionate. Greater details are available on my site.
Feel free to reach out if you feel my work may enhance your cause.
My work appears in formal, juried and private collections as well as the large-scale spaces of modern design. I have exhibited in art shows, art galleries around the country, and have received numerous awards. Decorative limited prints of my work are available.
I have taught art classes via local artists programs both in the schools and in my studio, lectured and been a guest speaker.
Whether a private home, corporate setting or hospitality installation my work complements the surroundings, conveying intense energy and emotion. Always in keeping with the client's aesthetic and art collection, my art establishes an ongoing relationship with the viewer.
My fine art includes sculpting equestrian bronzes, textural contemporary abstracts and abstract landscapes. An abstract expressionist in my heart, the soul-deepening process of creating abstracts parallels my obsession with the equine.
As an artist working in contemporary design, sculptures and private commission inquiries are always welcome.
