I only want to paint things that touch the soul! Impressions have long been my favorite painters. Their use of color, light and shadow inspires me. My art is mostly impressionistic with a bend towards realism. Imperfect bold colors, colors that touch the heart. Most of my motives are landscapes, cityscapes, and seascapes, but I also do some figurative work. My prefers media are oil and pastel. I live and paint on both sides of the Atlantic, have learned from several well-know American painters, work in my studios or en plain air, exhibit with several galleries in the Washington, D.C. area, exhibited in Germany and won a few awards in national juried competitions in the US.
