Welcome to my world.

I paint the extraordinary beauty i see in my wonderful, ordinary world.

I make time lapse videos of many of my paintings, because they're just so satisfying to watch. For more time lapse goodness, subscribe to my YouTube channel!

about me

gallery/smolder

I've always been able to paint, but I haven't always painted.

 

MY WHY...

My dad was a gifted lifelong musician, and until his last days on earth he used his gift. He lived fully by giving himself away. The day he died in May 2017, God pressed into my heart that I was wasting a precious gift, and I needed to put it to good use. So, I paint.

 

My style? Beauty, faithfully rendered.

I don't seek to shock anyone. I'm not edgy. But I see beauty in the everyday, and by some kind of magic, can render it faithfully onto canvas. 

 

A few of my favorite things...

I'm primarily a figurative realist painter. I love Chuck Close and Norman Rockwell. But really, it is a joy and an honor to capture images of what people hold most dear, regardless of what the subject happens to be. 

 

So, I do often find myself painting beloved dogs and horses. I've always been passionate about cars, and I admire the beauty and functional art of a good design. I dabble in just about everything. I'm a dabbler.
