It’s easy to make a painting look like paint, but it’s much harder to make a painting that pulls in a viewer so completely that he feels the heat of sun on his neck and the sand in his shoes. ~ James Gurney.

About Me

Nature is full of inspiration and wonder. It is delicate and yet intimidating, familiar and yet mysterious. Our natural heritage is a joy to paint and I feel honored to have the ability to transfer that beauty and record it into works of art for the viewer to enjoy. My works are mainly focused on sea life and underwater scenery even though I dabble into landscapes and fantasy illustrations every now and then. Art has been a huge part of my life growing up, but I took art seriously during college by teaching myself oil painting and taking on commissions whenever I could, and the journey of learning new techniques and improving my own skills continues today. One of the personal highlights of my artistic career is having a work of mine - HIV in Plasma - included in the New York State Museum’s permanent collection.
In regards to mediums and tools that I use for creating my art, oil colors are the main medium of choice. Other favorites include Acrylics, watercolors, charcoal, ink, and pencils. My art style can be categorized as representational realism. I hope that my art brings you pleasure and joy, and please don’t hesitate to contact me for any enquiries.
