For me painting is as essential as breathing. Everything I see and think has consideration to be interpreted onto canvas. I work with many different mediums and am constantly experimenting. I do however have a special love for oil paints. I especially like the textures and the rich colors created with them. I am essentially an oil painter of landscape.
I am an impressionist and like to leave lost and found for the viewer to fill in. This allows my pieces open to many different interpretations. I work with a limited palette mixing my colors and subsequently make beautiful colored grays. These colors help in creating a strong sense of light and mood to which I am most attracted.
My work shows a connection to the land. Raw, rugged, natural places are especially prominent. Human elements are limited as I feel we need to remember the land as it is.
Expressing myself on canvas is everything. To achieve a successful painting I create feelings that will touch my viewer’s heart. As my paintings are about feelings, if one lingers they will be able to “feel” the painting.
