"I have painted for nearly my whole life, taking classes whenever the opportunity came along. A few years back, noticing that there were so many exceptional landscape painters around, I turned to still-lifes. But I still try to sneak a little landscape into them. Some of my best paintings have come around because of entering art shows that have themes. It started with a painting of china dogs that I did to submit to an animal show. I like the challenge of using my still-life format to give a unique take on the theme."
