Artist’s Statement

In our harried, modern life, paintings can have a way of softening our man-made environments, serving as a window to an emotional view of nature. I strive to strike a balance between the harmony and chaos that exists in the natural world. I am heavily influenced by nature and find that connection constantly reflected in my paintings.

Painting has a way of bringing me back full circle to my creative roots. Through the interplay of line and color I develop a personal language to depict the world. It is my own private voice expressed, an exploration into a world purely of my own making with no external rules or needs. It allows me to speak from my heart, to what moves and motivates me, while serving as a mirror of my being and growing the connection to who I am.
