This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following is from the artist who lives in Mechanicsburg, PA

Artist Statement: Realistic art is basically about the world we see each day in our daily lives, and whenever possible, I prefer to see the beauty in it.

The portrayal of images and objects from my personal world, selected, and then created to evoke an aesthetic response in me and in others, is what my paintings are all about.

The exceptional color of one special flower, the interesting shadows cast by the intricate cuts in a crystal vase, the sunlight as it bathes a wonderful still life, any and all of which is all it takes to entice me into yet another painting adventure.
