Biography


Artist Statement

A painting should speak to a person through color and emotion. Everyone has their own unique experience that contributes to their likes and dislikes. My artworks show my love of light, nature and dreams. Throughtout my art career, I have been asked the question, "where do your ideas come from?" Many inspirations come from the surrounding landscape. My work is distinctive because of bold and vibrant colors.
