I Believe in the importance and the value of Art
It's powerful because the Art in which we surround ourselves can enrich our lives and affect the way we feel.
We identify with it and make unique and emotional connections that validate who we are.
My purpose is to create visually stimulating artworks that positively uplifts the senses, while communicating feelings that run through it on a deeper level.
My personal painting style has a lively palette of tonality, consisting of many complex broken layers of color and unique stylish textures. Bold palette knife work and expressive brush strokes are combined with the impact of atmospheric light.
My inspirations come from observing, outstanding natural beauty in California and Europe, along with mythology, legends and ancient lore.
My passion is to convey through paint emotional feeling while in the presence of a special and beautiful place.
To awaken our personal connection to it's many forms and allow us to experience them artistically throughout our daily lives.
