Artist Statement

“As a painter, I draw upon images not only from the external world, but those that come from within my inner self. I have so many creative ideas that present themselves and I wonder if I could ever really manifest them all onto canvas during my lifetime. I have a great love for nature and am filled with inspiration to recreate my personal interpretation of what I feel and see. My dream life is very rich and interesting and I often wake up in the morning with scenes of future paintings flowing through my mind. My intention is to uplift the viewer into a higher place through my art. If we stop and take the time to contemplate the beauty around us, we can see what we haven’t noticed before, hear what we haven’t listened to before, and touch that part of ourselves that shares oneness with all of life.”
