I love that art evokes an immediate reaction from the viewer and it is what first attracted me to create. When painting I am interested in using colors and textures to enhance the viewer’s experience. For the most part, the focus of my art has two predominant themes: our feelings as we experience various life events and the beauty in nature.
To feel means we are alive and I attempt to capture these moments in my paintings. I believe the viewer can relate to the feelings captured in the painting through their own life experiences. Making each viewer's experience the same in that they have experienced the emotion and different in that everyone’s life experiences are different.
When not focusing on life moments I enjoy painting landscapes and simple items from nature. Due to our busy lives we tend to overlook these things, taking them for granted.
