"In order to get something universal you must be very specific" - Max Beckman


"The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance" - Aristotle


Symbols play a primary role in the content of my work. Some of these symbols are obvious, while others are obscurely private. They are drawn from my own personal iconography, ancient cultures and previous art genres. I continue to find inspiration in the ‘vanitas’ of the Dutch and their conventional use of ordinary subjects to symbolize a wide variety of universal experiences.


My still-life’s and portraits are suffused with a varied array of content: hope, trust, vanity, frailty, fear, wisdom, knowledge, love, fidelity, memory, death, faith, the soul, spirit, purity, and most of all the contrast of the temporal and the eternal.


I remain passionate about still-life subjects and their inference of the human imprint on our surroundings.

I hope my paintings will stir each individual to introspectively ponder their meaning using their own life experience to define a personal conclusion as to their content.
