Artist Statement

"I paint for the sheer joy of it. I paint what moves me and interpret the subject in the style that befits it; be it either as a tightly rendered still life piece or a painterly landscape. I am intrigued by the complexity of abstract shapes and I am driven by color. I love the liquid of the medium, the familiar scent of freshly squeezed paint, the challenge of a blank canvas, and the bittersweet moment when a painting is finished."
