Still life realism oil painting

Thank you for stopping by to look at my work.


I'm a contemporary artist working in the realism and photorealism genres. I primarily paint still lifes of everyday objects, which I combine in such a way that allows visual narratives to emerge. The use of objects to create stories is something I feel grew out of my long career as a graphic designer and advertising art director. In that role, I enjoyed the challenge of examining the minute details of my clients’ businesses from which I would craft brand stories that aimed to connect with people at an emotional level. I have a similar approach to my work as an artist.
