I specialize in painting people and buildings. You might notice that most of my paintings show signs of human (or inhuman!) life: faces, figures, clothing, and habitations. Although I am rather a quiet loner by nature, I have always been fascinated by people and how they live, feel, and interact.

Vivid colors, charming old buildings, past eras, old horror movies, family secrets, ballroom dancing, passionate music, and romantic or exotic dresses all inspire dreamy pictures in my mind.

There have been some complications. Mainly, my old website program became obsolete, which meant that my site was frozen in time, and it looked as if I had dropped off the planet. Alas, that is not the case - we have finally cobbled together a new site, and I'm back once again, like a bad penny.

Speaking of Complications, it appears that this waiter has interrupted a rather intense discussion between this couple. The reference photo for this painting was taken during a stroll down the Avenue des Champs-Elysees, as we passed by a picturesque open-air restaurant. I've often wondered what was the outcome of their conversation!
