The Sycamore, oil on canvas, 26 x 40, 2015


My aim is to create deeply personal work that speaks about the soul of America.  My art is a reflection on an America that is rapidly disappearing. 

I have spent a great deal of time on the road. The paintings I make are distilled from that experience.  Although there is an aspect of cultural anthropology in my work, I have to feel  a profound personal connection with my subject. 

This emotional response is what I try to convey through my paintings. I’m seeking to evoke a certain mood through the limitations of paint.
