My intention is not to simply create a painting, but to replicate life itself-on a scale both small and large. By creating compositions within compositions, the eye is led from the sweeping panoramas to the intimate conversations heard along the shoreline.

I want you to not only feel the present moment, but the moment before and the moment after. Your mind’s eye will bring you beyond the borders of the frame, until you see all of humanity running, crawling, sitting and walking upon this orbiting planet. Time past, present and future.

I know the painting is done when I can hear it.
