I have been a commissioned mural artist for more than thirty
years. I’ve painted well over a thousand
murals in hotels in the United States, internationally, and in client’s
homes. I have also done commissioned
portraits which led to my love of faces, the range of human expression. These past decades I have been a student of
light and color and shadow and texture.
Working in large format has given me an appreciation for detail and
technique, proportion and placement. Now,
for this next phase in my career as a professional artist, I have scaled to
painting on canvas with oils and acrylic using the skills I first learned in
Kent State University as an Art Major now honed through time.
Due to my work in portraiture. I found what fascinated me
most were interesting faces showing emotion and depth of character. Happiness and sadness, love and acceptance,
fear and trepidation, hope and longing.
Thus, I unveil my new collection of paintings, Faces and Places. In every face is a story of hopes and dreams,
emotion and drama. We all not only see
the world differently, but each of us engages our environment every day, our
faces change constantly. I have set
myself to capturing the essence of the soul in moments of life. I use a varied color palette to bring
interest and depth. I am also fascinated
with the places where we live and work.
Each is unique. Each has a yin
and yang to it. We interact not just
with each other but with the physical world.
In my Faces and Places, I put the world in a very different light.
I have relegated to the past the ladder, the scaffolding and
the gallons of paint I used to adorn colossal spaces. I am now joined to my easel and my tubes of
oil and acrylic. I hope to find a place
on the walls of your home or business. I
equally hope that my Faces and Places will inspire and instruct.
