Inspired by nature, light and music. My style is influenced by 20th century color theorists and contemporary graphic design.
In the past few years I have become increasingly fascinated by the ability of color and light to alter our mood in a very natural way. In reaction, I paint to create positive environments with nature elements as foundation. My process involves intuitively fine tuning the color palette with many layers to create patterns for the eye to flow through the painting and giving it a painterly surface with visually organic qualities while retaining a graphic sensibility.
