Artist Statement

The focus of my artwork is to apply thoughtful composition and color to the subjects I paint, in order to bring the viewer to a sense of calmness and contentment. I have always found great interest in landscape painting for its ability to connect one with nature. My love of impressionism and representational art, as well as abstract art, has had a huge influence on me. Stylistically, I seek to find a balance between these influences. I often employ bold brushwork when crafting a scenein order to bring emphasis and attention where I feel it needs to be. Some of my works are painted from photographs I’ve taken from places near and far. Others are inspired by a conceptualized setting, which I really enjoy, because it can lead one to use their imagination when viewing my work.
