My landscapes, figures and portraits capture a joyous celebration and a deep reverence for the blessings of each day. My work expresses a sense of excitement and energy that come from the intimacy of my surroundings. Honesty in my work is of the utmost importance, and is conveyed by my ability to capture the emotion of the moment.
