Bio

I am a self taught oil painter who works almost exclusively via palette knife. In my collection of works, I draw upon the physicality of nature, specifically flowers and local land-scapes, and I attempt to present them in an almost tactile manner. Working with thickly applied oils, I scrape, reapply and layer again to create an image that captures the structures of nature in various settings. Utilizing only a palette knife, I create large and small gestures to represent and express how I view a nature in still life or within a landscape.
