||My Mission Statement|

I paint because painting is my passion. I can think of no other occupation that would give me the endless hours of challenge and satisfaction than that of creating art with my paint brush.
My medium is oil on canvas, and my subjects are mainly the beautiful people and places of the Caribbean where I was born and spent my teenage years. I greatly admire the realism paintings of the 19th century, but I believe the works of Winslow Homer influence me most. I am fascinated by the intense colors and magnificence of nature, and I find it interesting and often amusing watching ordinary people in the course of their ordinary lives. I try to capture all these on my canvas and share my experiences as I see them with my viewers. My mission is simple. I am pleased if people stop and look at my paintings and if I detect a smile or a frown on their faces, then my mission is accomplished.
