The approach to my work stems from personal experience and exploration. A love of nature influences most of my paintings. Often the title will suggest the origin of the composition but the emotional quality is created by the choice of colors. The interplay of color provokes such pleasure for me as I paint that I don’t want it to end. Large, expressive, colorful works on canvas are what I enjoy painting the most.

energetic flow and the creative process.
It is a joy to follow my passion.
Inspiration is infinite and the desire to
express is extremely pressing.”
