My paintings focus on local people and scenes. The subjects are shown going about their daily activities – working in a boat on the water, picking crops in the farm  fields, lounging in the backyard. The local scenes are celebrations of the beauty in quiet places that often go overlooked as we rush off to the more popular sights.

  Many of the works are multi-media, often incorporating the use of natural materials, creating a three dimensional quality.
