Artist Statement:

In my painting, I try to recreate my own viewpoint for the viewer.
My creative feeling begins with the search for subject matter
that is captivating both spatially and in its forms.

My subject matter comes from various sources including nature.
After I absorb the feel of the scene, I begin to design my
compositions in a manner similar to that of the impressionist.
To evoke a more intense feeling of excitement than the actual
scenes I paint, sometimes I apply intense layers of bright color
or I create texture with sand gel and apply bold brush strokes.
These techniques result in color patches which lend a slightly
more contemporary feel to my work.

I try to avoid making the viewer feel a sense of depression or
difficulty in understanding what they are seeing in my painting.
My hope is to inspire a feeling of comfort and happiness with
my art.
