"My paintings are the result of my desire and passion to paint. Oil Painting gives me the privilege of creating my own order to things, to reflect who I am on this colorful journey of self discovery and to be unafraid to share what I find.
My intended goal is to capture and communicate life's experiences, moments and memories and convey my painted definition to the viewer. To draw the viewer into the piece and to stimulate and inspire them with its textures and colour.
I am influenced by colours I see, feel and experience. I am in awe of and thoroughly inspired by the old impressionists with their play of objects and light.
I would require a thousand lifetimes and a million canvases to paint all of the concepts of my imagination.
