My paintings bring you to calm places. They are focused on scenes in the world around us, and they mean to slow you down and give you feelings of peace. It’s all about capturing the moment in time, the light, the essence of any subject. Colors, light and shadow, shapes and contours are all fascinating elements. It’s all about recording and emphasizing what I’m seeing. And as an artist I’m grateful to find that what I do is appreciated and enjoyed by others. It’s that sense of bringing joy to other people and elevating their world and bringing them peace.
