Artist Statement

“The thing I like about painting is that it captures life that one moment, that one remarkable story. I love the textures, light patterns, colors and voices of the land and sky. I love both the dramatic and bold changes in life, as well as the sheer undeniable strength of the weather and seasons and from that how light manipulate the contrasting values, hues and tones of its recipient. As an artist I seek new ways to share my vision.”
