Paintings on display at Barriques on Old Sauk Road, Middleton Wisconsin.

I began painting in 2002 after I purchased my first home, in part because I needed art for the walls. Of course, there was more to it, and starting down that path uncovered a hidden desire to create.

Not to everyone’s taste, but I like to explore painting through an abstract expressionistic lens, with a heavy emphasis on a drip painting technique.
