Artist Statement:
Whether its people walking down the street, a kitchen sink, or a beautiful landscape, I strive for my paintings have imagination, color, and insight of all that I see and feel. I am always striving to master my use of color, tone and texture.

Color is like a person’s signature, if it’s the right color, I have to have it. And when I find those colors I feel it immediately, like hearing music so beautiful that I have to stop whatever else I’m doing and listen. My paintings are from my view which is composition, value, color, and emotion.
