Artist's Statement:

 "I love painting with vibrant, pure colors- the brighter the better! A combination of palette knife and brush application allows me to create a variety of textures in my oil and acrylic paintings. I’ve recently begun to use mixed media elements into select pieces to add extra dimensional elements; incorporating my original drawings, watercolor, and found objects into paintings provides endless creative possibilities.

My inspiration comes from being outside, either observing natural surroundings or details of architecture. I take daily walks in the forest, in town, or along the coast to observe the interplay of light, color, shadows and shapes.”
