is an American painter. He studied at Laguna College of Art and Design. He takes his inspiration from Lucian Freud, John Singer Sargent, Courbet, Wyeth and Turner.
“When referring to representational paintings, details are a necessary part of individual style, but they can often be distracting. When it comes to painting, just as in life, it is always best to start with the most general concepts and move on to more complex ideas and passages once you have those worked out. Looking at a painting for the first time is almost like being on a first date. First impressions are key, and you may lose the attention of your audience quickly if the work is lacking an overall sense of accuracy and clarity. In the end, if the ‘big idea’ is lacking substance and character, the details become irrelevant.”
