Artist Statement

Painting is an exhilarating experience. Creating art is a joyous and complete means of sharing my artistic and metaphysical perception of life. The result is experiencing maturity, growth, and great personal pleasure in sharing visual expression and creative interpretation. When painting I learn new aspects about my style, the world, and myself.

I take delight in painting celebrity portraits and colorful landscapes. My portraits capture inspiration for the human face and its features as a window to the soul, celebrating visual appeal as well as higher spiritual energies. My landscapes are imbued with vibrancy, energy, and movement; and are joyously inspired by colors, scenery, urban life and nature, creating a visual and emotional dance that captures the heart of their expressive creation.

My brush strokes are rich, happy, dancing, and filled with movement, giving the viewer an original thought-provoking snapshot of life. The rich, buttery texture of oil paint achieves my goal of celebrating and documenting life. When people see my work, I’d like them to be inspired with positive energy and come away feeling good with an expanded awareness.
