"I began painting in 2003, sort of on a whim, but to see how I might be able to express my creative energy through visual art. I found that I enjoy working with high-quality acrylic paint mixed with textured mediums on either stretched canvas or wood panels. I utilize palette knives, scrapers, textured papers and other random odds and ends to create my images. All of my paintings are original works and my process and style is ever evolving. I find inspiration for my paintings in the subtleties of nature, in my daily interactions with humanity, and from a lifetime packed with unforgettable experiences."
