“As an artist, oil is my medium of choice. The rich, fluid textures and colors enhance the spontaneous brushstrokes I use to create a painting. I am drawn to that moment when one captures a place or feeling in their mind and stores it as a special memory. Nature never ceases to amaze me with it’s brilliant hues, shadows, and light. I try to bring this original passion I felt into my painting process. Hopefully, my vivid colors will be the trait you notice in my work. I want to evoke an emotional response from the viewer drawing them into the painting.”
