Most of my subject matter is inspired as a result of my day-to-day activities in Western New York or travels with my family throughout the United States. I am a representational painter, and my subject matter relates mainly to floral and other still life designs and local landscape. I am inspired by the many flowers that grow in my gardens and enjoy setting up still life designs to paint seasonally. I enjoy taking photo references as I travel through the countryside in Niagara County, the Finger Lakes and Chautauqua and you will note the inspiration in many of my paintings. I appreciate your taking the time to view these pages.
