About My Art

The way each of us remembers a particular moment in life has always fascinated me.  Our minds can only focus on so many details at a time, which makes how we view any given moment truly unique to each viewer. My paintings represent how I perceive reality while I am living in these moments.  Some details are blurred out, while others are hyper-exaggerated.

The way I paint is the most natural and enjoyable way for me to create using this model.  Expressive colors and lines create multiple images on one canvas with knives, brushes, and squeegees until my perception of the moment has fully been reached.

My paintings are always inspired from the moments in my life worth remembering; especially with loved ones, wildlife, and places I travel.  It has become my way of appreciating these moments in life and doing everything possible to live a fully aware life.  Using oil paint on canvas and wood, each painting always influences the next.  I enjoy my painting process as each color and subject matter control the flow of where the painting will go.  When finished I take pleasure in seeing what other people find in my art as no one ever sees the same thing.
