These paintings are an endless practice of reconnecting with a place of peace and
space within the chaos of intense and overwhelming human emotion. I have
always loved nature and the exploration of dreams and these works are a play
between the two: a blending of the lines between what is real and what is
imagined and how our emotions dictate how we perceive the world that
I wish to convey a sense of wonder and awe for both the vastness and the
intimacy of our internal journey, as well as for the external world through which
we move. Both the moon and trees are common themes of my paintings hinting
at the concepts of growth and connection, and the intention of lifting ourselves
to greater heights. Ansel Adams’ work has been a great inspiration to me and I
strive to emulate his love of light and substance in many of my pieces.
I will leave it to each person to find their own stories within the works. I
encourage you to get up close and discover your own reactions to the paintings
and share what you discover! Art is created out of the relationship between the
work and viewer’s experience. I very much hope that you enjoy.
