Art with a Story & Process

My Artistic Process

As an Expression Artist, I love the idea that by simply drawing I can create a message and when posting it I break communication barriers. My Small “Daily Express” story drawings are recalled randomly from images of my own experience to create "observation-memory drawing" of moods, relationships and culture. These same drawings are sold as prints and used as a resource for creating my oversize, large paintings, sculptures and installations.

My Approach

Whenever possible, I enjoy working directly from live subjects on as a performance painter on stage or sketching in public spaces, and bird sketching in habitats is truly a source of inspiration. I've been told repeatedly that the operative attribute that brands my art is working "Live," from living, 3D subjects, creating an energy of life, motion, depth and emotion; without relying on flat images.
