Welcome to my official web site featuring images of recent paintings and current information on my art!  Having been a fine art painter since 1997, I work in traditional media including oil on canvas and watercolor.  In the past, my investigations in painting have focused on landscape ideas of industrial decay and urban detritus.  Such works were painted intuitively, from imagination, without the aid of photographic reference.

    More recently, I have become focused on a series of paintings which began with the influence of an older series of photographs which I had taken in the city.  These cityscape paintings allow for new interpretations of the urban landscape and are composed in transparent watercolor as well as oil on canvas!  Further, I have begun to think of these cityscape paintings in a historic Houston context since they borrow from specific architectural sites within the city.

This work is now organized chronologically as my “Houston History Series”.

     In addition, in 2014, I began a new series of pastoral landscape paintings based upon the regional Texas landscape! Select media for this body of work will encompass watercolor, oil on canvas and new oil pastels.

    My studio is located in Houston, Texas, U.S.A.!  Also, I am a faculty member of The Glassell School of Art, the school of The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston where I teach drawing, design and watercolor.  My paintings appear regionally in corporate and public collections as well as in private collections regionally, nationally and abroad.  Please view my exhibitions section for information on past, present and future exhibitions of my art.
