I create European influenced expressionist influenced salvaged sculptures, oil, and encaustic wax paintings. I apply abstraction, adding and subtracting to bring moments of discovery beautifully created  with many varieties of materials. This is a journey of acceptance and refusal, luring the viewer on a journey between two worlds, the temporal and the spiritual with the joining path being grace. My paintings radiate a vibrant visual feast.

My mission is to show viewers how despite trauma we can rise above our circumstances by experiencing the manifest glory of God all around us. Through my art there are messages of eternal love, heavenly glory, and an unceasing celebration of life. These presences bring joyful rest and create healing sanctuaries.

I am honored to help you find the perfect artworks for your walls.

My work has been shown and honored with awards at numerous exhibitions across the US including 2 museums and several universities. I have also painted and exhibited in France, Italy and in many plein air events and competitions.

My work has been featured in Art Up Close shown at Art Basel, Miami, Art Expo NY, Spectrum Miami, Art Monaco,  Architectural Digest fairs and in publications Art in America Guide 2016-17 and Art Up Close World Edition 2015-17.

I invite you to visit me at my studio in Wayne, PA!
