For the last fifteen years, I have made large oil paintings on canvas or wood panel. Some have included three-dimensional objects that toy with traditional perspective and like a talisman contributes a mysterious allure. These works, along with their heightened sense of drama, mood and mystery, make play with illusion and point to the existence of a dual reality. My work emphasizes the narrow edge between dreams and real life.
