Artist Statement: My practice is centered around the experience of working from life; directly from a source. Whether the subject is a still life, the human form, or landscape, the infinite variations that are present while observing the natural world are what feed my desire to create. Tuning into the present moment, and translating what is around me into paint is the utmost challenge and pleasure. I love the act of painting; it is when I feel completely free. Telling stories, creating visual worlds and appreciating nature through art is my greatest joy. Sharing this with others is the cherry on top.
