My work seeks to suspend in tension every moment, showing the beauty in the fragility of life.
My recent paintings are diverse and seek to explore the bodies and relationship we inhabit. They illustrate the connection between beings and the mystical and lyrical energies that our presence emits.
Landscape paintings allow me to capture moments through my travels that showcase the beauty of nature and the effervescence of time. I have painted in Oregon, Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, and Mexico.
I am influenced heavily by artists who capture light--Edward Hopper, Phillip Gustion, James McNeil Whistler. Among my other favorite artists are Van Gogh and Monet, who bring inanimate subjects to life, and breathe life into portraits and landscapes.
Making art for as long as I have has taken a lot of perseverance, dedication, and passion. I create with the utmost sincerity, developing new pieces that will give new hope, inspire and bring wonder.
