When it comes down to it, I paint what I like.  

I grew up in the rural Northeast, but have spent most of my adult life as a city dweller.  You'll find both of these influences in my body of work.

I love the vibrant colors and tranquil scenes offered by the natural world around us.  But I'm also drawn to the structure, sharp edges and strong lines of our modern cities.  There's beauty in both and I love the process of trying to capture those elements on the canvas.
