As a painter, I am particularly drawn to the landscape - the colors, shapes, lines and atmosphere.
I am inspired by nature and organic forms. My works seeks to capture the essential elements of each subject to evoke both a sense of energy and contemplation. My background as a graphic designer enables me to break down images to their fundamental shapes, revealing the simple essence of my subject. As I work, I build the surface by applying multiple layers of oil paint, retaining traces of previous marks and colors while obscuring others. This approach creates a depth and history which results in a complex and nuanced surface of color harmony and balance.
