The Artist Says:


My work is inspired by nature. I aim to infuse my paintings with truth as well as my own artistic interpretations. I want the end result to be pleasing to the eye, a culmination of my technique and the subject matter I have chosen. I choose my subject matter for a variety of reasons: to explore color, form, for an overall theme or mood, and  to express our relationship to nature.
