I have been influenced by quite a few styles since beginning my adventures in art, but my greatest affinity has always been with the proponents and masters of Realism and the Baroque Period, as I have deeply admired an artistic ability to capture the emotional and active essence of a particular moment in time, in media res. I perceive my own artwork as consisting of a tangible suffusion of the manifestation of my creativity and vision, which helps to animate, or “breathe life,” into my objects d’art. I am equally enamored with multiple media, showing no favoritism towards the many tools of my artisan calling, whether acrylic paints, pastels, watercolors, or airbrushes, each of which upon I rely to assist in making my subjects transform into vivid and realistic depictions of that which is nebulous or ephemeral, the fruits of my combined imagination and perception.
