While I paint in different genres, first and foremost is my love of plein-air painting. Being out in nature and enjoying what each day has to offer is reason alone to pick up the paint box and head to the woods.
Impressionistic in style, my goal is to stay loose and focus on color notes and light. I’m constantly experimenting with different pallets, lighting, and subject matter; each bringing a separate challenge.
Deciding what paintings to showcase for the Arts Expo I’ve included a mix of plein-air, portrait, figural, and landscape.
I’ve been lucky to travel the world seeing it through an artist’s eye and documenting my travels through paintings. Thanks for viewing and I hope you enjoy!
