I paint the struggles of life, and the gifts that emerge from them. Sometimes I use nature to tell my story.
I often pair transparent or reflective items to serve as a contrast to objects with a strong sense of form. Even though color and light are used to direct the eye in the composition, the paintings also read as poems about the human condition. As they are experienced, they are meant to open for the viewer mystery still in the making.
