I have been an artist as long as I can remember. I feel that art can help people with a search for meaning in their lives. I believe that appreciating something beautiful can be healing. I hope to bring happiness and healing through my paintings.
I use many different mediums, such as oil, acrylics, and pastels. I love to experiment. Each phase of exploration manifests in its own individual style.
I enjoy hiking in my spare time and many of my pieces are influenced by these hikes in nature. I love recreating scenes and nature in my work. I'm also influenced by nostalgia, and memories of happy times, and the play of light, especially during the golden hour.
