Art is an integral part of my life. Reflected in all of my pieces, is a sense of calm and beauty no matter the subject matter. Since painting creates a sense of personal happiness and fulfillment,
I want others to experience the joyful quietness I aim to convey through my work. Brushstrokes, edges and composition are important to me and I rely heavily upon these three components to evoke a feeling of serenity in my paintings. Also celebrated in my work, is the relationship between light and color — an inspiration allowing me the expressive freedom to interpret a subject and to achieve a painterly and sometimes, slightly abstracted piece.
