"Challenges provide opportunity and growth.
My paintings are inspired by my surroundings, at home or afar. I have focused on Plein air painting, which allows me to observe and experience the landscape.
I am drawn to the light, color and shapes of landscapes and I am eagerly translate these qualities to my painting surface. Each painting is a challenge to capture not only the terrain, but the light, atmosphere and feeling each view provides me.
