I create PHOTO REALISTIC PAINTINGS with acrylic on canvas of vanishing landmarks and neon signs; roadside restaurants; motels; abandoned buildings and disappearing urban and rural artifacts. 

This year’s collection is of “neon” and my travels.

 

I capture these striking images in a photograph and then work back and forth between photography and canvas to create meticulously rendered images noticing details such as the way light filters through a window or the play of shadows on a wall.

 

My canvasses are often large and spellbinding in their finely honed precision; they invite contemplation. 

I am greatly influenced by the bold and innovative architectural style of Frank Lloyd Wright and Luis Barragan as they blend art and architecture.
