My artistic style has evolved from realism to a romantic dreamy style and even into the abstract. I have developed my techniques through painting murals and refining my skills through the art of marble and wood grain decorative painting. Although all the paintings are in acrylic, texture is very important to me, as when I am working with Italian plaster and applying it to wall surfaces. In working with rust and patina I have found a true love. These finishes bring me back to the basics and depict how things in life are not perfect but in time erode and rust, creating another beauty that cannot be overlooked.
