Artist Statement

As an artist I am constantly searching for the individual voice that drives me to explore my inquisitive nature. With my paintings, I try to create an honest, lasting impression that draws the viewer into a world that is part reality and part imagination.

My goal is not to copy nature, but rather to explore it and try to openly present a new experience with each piece. I hope it is the emotion of the landscape the viewer will see; a magnificent sky, the sun slicing across the horizon or the way shadows play on a lake. Capturing this scene and portraying it to the viewer is a visual challenge that I can’t always predicted or contained.

My paintings explore different levels of the human condition and the inescapable aspects of being an individual. Creating a visual language through color and expressive brushstroke, my narrative is invoked through three different bodies of work addressing the divergent aspects of emotions collectively.
