I paint because I cannot stop. It is a constant source of joy and self-satisfaction. I am best known for my vibrant use of color and am inspired by the shapes, colors, and light found in nature. Good design, variety of shapes, and frequent color shifts are foremost in my mind. I design bold, large paintings from a close vantage point to create an atmosphere which connects people to my artwork in an intimate way. I paint subjects I am passionate about which generates an excitement within myself. This excitement is communicated to the viewer. My goal is to create both a visual and visceral response providing the viewer with a colorful and dynamic artistic experience.
