Having grown up in Northwest, I am surrounded by natural beauty. I find inspiration from the simplicity of everyday things and work to bring those items to their extreme through an expression of dramatic color and lighting.
When I begin each piece, I allow the paint and colors to move me. I don't typically have a carefully mapped out plan for each painting, but rather just an idea or focal point that develops throughout the creation. It's the emotional interest that is my true goal, as that’s where artwork becomes interesting to me – is from its ability to make a stranger feel or reflect. Much of my recent work is done with a pallet knife, which can provide intricate detail while still leaving a lot of room for your interpretation. I use oils and acrylics and paint on a variety of surfaces including, canvas, board and Plexiglas.
