Like most artists, my work has periods of change or growth as I adapt to new techniques and experiences. These changes deal mostly with subject matter, scale, and process. My subject matter and series have ranged from landscapes, houses, lawn chairs, signs, and people. Most of my artwork uses strong sunlight and shadows to establish interesting compositions and the subjects represent "a slice of life" both past and present. To create my artworks, I generally work in my studio, using my own photographs. The large paper and canvases are attached to the wall and I listen to music while I draw or paint. Each piece is a representation of the photo and I make adjustments to the composition based on intensity of light, color, or subject complexity.
