As an oil painter, I use my paint to tell a story. I want to evoke inspiration in my paintings by utilizing light and color. Painterly brushstrokes and a bold use of color create a sense of movement and energy that flows through my paintings. I do not feel any need to fill my paintings with a lot of detail or information. Rather, I prefer to have my inspiration seep through the openness in my paintings and allow the viewer to connect to the piece emotionally, and have it be part of their life story.
The experiences in my life and my passion for the beauty of nature are what I wish to capture. My true inspiration comes from the elegance found in the ordinary. Beauty is everywhere and all is inspiration to the heart of an artist.
