Art and nature have been a constant healing force throughout my life. The changing colors, light and energy draw me to the essence of the landscape. My paintings strive to capture a calming, dreamy atmosphere with balanced realism and abstraction. It's an honor to share a unique experience with others who enjoy my work.
You have to be very disciplined, and brave
A lot of my smaller pieces take a very long time
You’re taking nothing and you’re making something
