Life inspired my work and my work inspired my life...

Painting has always been an exciting experience to me. I can't image a word without art, not just because I am an artist but also because it feeds the very soul of who we are. It fills our world with color and beauty and offers us a chance to questions.
Art has a language all it's own and each time a new artist steps up and has something to say that is unique it gives us a chance to expand our hearts and minds.
My works stretch you to reach for something inside yourself that you might not even know is there. It invites you to see differently, to feel more alive and connect to your heart.
My goal is to create something that maybe isn't new but eternal!
I paint five to six days a week. I often paint from real life in the studio or outdoor probably 85% of the time, then I use my memory and photos. For my landscapes, I almost always work from smaller field studies that I have painted on location. The field studies are extremely important. They give me the accurate values and colors that a camera can't capture. Also, since I have already painted the scene while standing in it, I have an organic connection that gives me more confidence in the studio. This confidence can manifest itself in the freedom to change things around to create a more pleasing composition. The photos are usually used for details that I may not have had time to capture in my field studies.
The most challenging part of my creative process is making composition decisions and judgments, especially when a piece is almost finished. Many times there is no right or wrong solution, just preferences. I can drive myself crazy deciding if I should put a tree branch here, or a sky hole there. I always seek perfection even though I know I will never really reach it.
You could say I self medicate with paint. The result is a communication and a connection with others. I often find that people are attracted to my work they are growing through their own challenges and a certain piece speaks to that part of them. I always say that each of my artwork has a perfect home!
Thank You for passing by...
Have a Wonderful day!
Best Regards
