styles and influences

In my paintings I try to capture the essential truth behind the scene, the unseen forces that animate the elements. To this end, I’m more interested in depicting the mood of a place than I am in duplicating exactly what it looks like. It’s a longstanding interest of mine. As a painting and printmaking student at Virginia Commonwealth University in the 1980s, I used abstract expressionism to disrupt depictions of the perceived world. Now, my work often evokes the dreamlike quality of the Surrealists, as well as the color and energy of the Post-Impressionists.
