“I create imaginative figure and animal paintings inspired by narratives and nature. My latest prism paintings take everyday subject matter and scenes and applies a contemporary cubist-like style to them. The idea came about from seeing my own paintings leaning behind a large piece of stained glass (creating stained glass was a favorite hobby of my grandfather). Applying this prism-like style to my oil paintings in triangular patches of color creates a kaleidoscope-type image, where the viewer can feel like they are happening upon a special moment in time.”
