​Artist Statement


When I create a piece of artwork, I'm on an intuitive journey, coalescing the raw spirit of the natural world with the experiences, emotions, vulnerabilities and wonderments one can only find there. Through texture, form and translucent layering of paint, one can sense the mysteries, movement and competing forces of this world. All aspects of the painting integrate and become a powerful, yet lyrical composition of heart and mind.
