After studying and practicing for many years, I now attempt to let go and let the moment(s) take me where they may....  


Mother Nature is amazing. She can be fierce one minute and suddenly, she can switch to quiet and calm. I am drawn to these emotional qualities found in the natural world. I love being out in it and I love trying to capture it with paint. It is an endless journey. 

I attempt to capture nature and her wild temperament with the manipulation of composition, color, light, marks and emotion. I am always attempting to push the paintings where I want them to go but sometimes they push me back and that’s when new discoveries are made and evolution happens.
