"Bones are neither straight nor perfectly curved. Each is as unique as the life-force they once held. Painting skulls feels like a grapple with mortality and existential beauty, a duality I hope these paintings communicate. "
Artist Statement: Painting en Plein Air
"Painting en plein air makes me conscious of how fluid a landscape really is. Light and color change at a moment's notice, clouds and waves move constantly. Creating a landscape en plein air gives me the time to sit, listen, smell, observe, and respond in paint."
Contemporary Realist Painter
"Art is a reflection of life. I paint from a source of love and joy to infuse my paintings with light, color, and beauty. Meaningful connections with people, animals, and natural landscapes are the lifeblood of my work."
