ARTIST STATEMENT

Inspired by my fascination with  nature, I juxtapose people, birds, fish, shells, flowers, and landscapes in a variety of environments in my works; offering viewers a glimpse into my dreams and imagination. My body of work expresses the beauty and nobility I see within all life no matter what level it may occur. My paintings capture a delicacy and at the same time a boldness in form.
My strong colors challenge the viewer. Painting for me, always begins with intense observation of the subject matter.
