Originally a graphic designer, I was drawn to oil painting because of the expressive qualities I can create. Communicating my feelings of joy, happiness and sadness through paint is my goal. The meditative feel of moving paint around a canvas and the therapeutic application of color is what I crave. I'm drawn to impressionist painting, inspired by Post Impressionism.
Van Gogh, Renoir, & Lucian Freud are inspirations. Showing the viewer part of the story and letting them form their own impression is important to me. Animal and figurative portraits give voice to some of the most important emotions of the human condition.
