I construct and paint still lives as a form of a narrative. Some are created as a reflection of what others or I collect. Objects sometime have weighted meaning or representation as character in a storyline.

The series of small paintings below is inspired by the still life of Juan Sánchez Cotán,’s Quince, Cabbage, Melon and Cucumber(1602) is a reflection of my early interest in still life and dream like imagery.The series of small paintings inspired by the still life of Juan Sánchez Cotán,’s Quince, Cabbage, Melon and Cucumber(1602) is a reflection of my early interest in still life and dream like imagery.
