Artist’s Statement:

My varies from representational to abstract and is primarily done in acrylic and oil paint with glazes. Currently, I find inspiration in the impressionistic works and my surrounding environment. My art fulfills a personal need and represents my life’s journey. My style is characterized by energetic brushwork applied in small, quick strokes which captures the light and color from nature.
