From the Artist
“It is important for me to create a painting which is interesting both up close and further away in order to engage the imagination. Inspiration is something which is honest to me and something which I believe makes a universal connection.”
“Color, composition, and paint handling are key elements in my paintings and tools for my expression. The fluidity and flexibility of oil paint is well-suited to my creative process. When I paint, I connect with changing light, the color of my surroundings, and movement. I focus on abstract shapes and forms creating a whole.
