My work includes realistic drawings, paintings and photographs that are influenced by my art studies in Italy and in the U.S. From a foundation in realism I developed abstract and surreal styles in drawing, painting and photography. Though I have painted in oils, my current body of work is mostly acrylic because of the vibrancy of color and speed of drying. Many of my pieces show an interest in fantasy or mysticism, while others show a fascination with cosmic events. However, through these experimental styles I always return to my foundation...realism. This is especially true in works influenced by nature where I love to depict trees, canyons, clouds, waterfalls and other inspirational scenes often with hidden figures.
