I make paintings. When I make a painting I strive to create an interesting object. It must have it's own source of light. The surface must compel you to take a closer look. Every square inch should stand on its own. And whether it's a figure, a landscape, a piece of fruit or a dog on a hill, it should make you want to know more. I studied painting at Boston University's School of Fine Arts where I earned my Bachelors degree.
