Where do my ideas originate?
I’m inspired by people and things in life, the visions in my dreams and my intuition. All those factors influence what I create. As I paint, I allow the painting to tell me what colors to use, what it should look like when finished and how to create that end result.
My paintings are my friends.
They can seduce your emotions into a palpable experience with my subject matter. Some are beautiful or fragile. Others are haunting or humorous with attitude. Most of my paintings are healing, inspiring, profound, and always thought provoking!
It’s my intent that my artwork mirrors the spirit and soul of each subject, and creates a personal experience within each viewer.
