“I create my art to fulfill a deep sense of accomplishment and personal joy that I like to share with others. I find my inspiration in the beauty of nature all around us. I particularly love capturing the nuances of light and shadow in landscapes and still life settings. Ultimately, the natural beauty of nature captures my eye and it is in these pieces that I find my greatest joy. More recently I have discovered the art of abstract painting using acrylic paints. The flow and movement in these abstracts are quite an intrigue and inspiration to me."
