Artist Statement
I love to paint both what I see and what I feel.

My more abstract works are painted in an intuitive manner, sometimes leaning toward surrealism, but oftentimes they are purely a play between colour and composition.

I love walking in natural areas as well as in the uptown where my studio is located. I am intrigued by the way light can define the mood of what I am viewing. I also tend to notice things others may miss. Painting allows me to share my visions of the world around me. Night scenes have become the inspiration for many recent works. I love the way subjects tend to recede into the background here and there, allowing me, as the artist, to capture an aura of mystery.

I have an unquenchable thirst to better my art and grow as an artist. This leads me to push myself in new directions and to explore different media and to create new ways of using mediums I am already familiar with.

I feel very blessed to be able to represent myself and to be able to meet the people who view and purchase my works. Being in isolation has made it more difficult to interact with folks but it is also forcing me to be more creative in how I market and reach people. Hopefully the lessons I am learning will make me a better and more productive artist.
