I paint from the back forward, gradually adding intense detail, vibrancy, and highlights as my work springs to life. Everywhere I go, I study light and shadow, shape and form. I often take cues from beautiful photography or places I’ve been, but when I am ready to paint I close my eyes and try to capture the essence of what it could be… the way it makes me feel inside.
My work evokes a sense of classic timelessness, often with a unique, magical touch. A joy to be inspired and to inspire others drives a lot of what I do. I want my paintings to take you to places you never knew you wanted to go. Places genuine and true, where you can feel overwhelmed and at peace in the same moment.
