My paintings can be divided into categories, figurative, portrait, landscape, and still life. I paint in an expressive style. I believe my paintings have an atmosphere and dark emotional quality. My portrait drawings are all done from life. My still lifes are also done from life. My landscapes and seascapes are done from memory and imagination. I try and make my site lives come alive as well as making the eye move around the canvas by using color and composition. Sometimes with portraits, I will use my imagination and try to create a painting like the three faces which I believe brings my paintings into the surreal. I believe the painting I included of the blue figure is also surreal
