  Fine Art of the Central Coast


I vary my work regularly, searching for the new way of portraying the things I like to paint the most. Exploration of oil paint on copper, aluminum, velvet (that one wasn't sucessful), burlap, old books, postcards etc gives me the chance to freshen up a bit. Each support offers it's own particular challenge.  Portraiture is something that really appeals to me. Although it is most likely that I have to work from photo references, I do not choose to copy the image but rather try to portray the person in a more painterly manner. I look for that special glance, that interesting turn of cheek or something that makes the effort of a painted portrait special.
