About

My art is about seeing something of inspiration in nature or in everyday life and then expanding on what I see, trying to say something about it that hopefully will speak to the viewer I will attempt to capture the interplay of light and shadow by simplifying and often modifying the shapes. To be more impactful. In order to encapsulate the mood of the moment, I like to vary the texture and size of the strokes and use bolder colors than you might actually find in my starting reference.

I am drawn to the quiet spots in nature more so than the panoramic views, and try to evoke their simplicity of beauty. The same is true in my still life pieces, it’s about small, everyday moments of life. So what I really see at that moment, is the starting point, and then it goes somehow on its own from there. If when you look at the piece and get the same sensation I had about the moment, well that is truly a thing of joy!
