ARTIST STATEMENT
"I enjoy painting what I refer to as our Spirit Places. These are the places we go to when we feel our most energized, the strongest and the places that bring us the most joy. I have always been visually overwhelmed, painting is my way of putting into words the connection I feel to the landscape. If I can capture that energy and make a connection with the collector on an emotional level then I've created a successful painting."
