Painting Nature’s Essence
Beauty isn’t only in the eye of the beholder. It’s in the heart of the beholder as well. I aim to create paintings that inspire a deeper appreciation of natural beauty. The world seems like it’s moving at an ever-faster pace. Spending time viewing nature can bring us back to a sense of stillness, serenity and aliveness, a brief escape from the everyday stresses of life.
I paint atmospheric landscapes and vibrant florals that convey this sense of peace, beauty and serenity. Whether it’s being fascinated by the dramatic, exquisite and ever-changing skies and clouds, being uplifted by the beauty of vividly colored flowers or appreciating the patterns and colors of the lush countryside, I want it to feel as if you have been transported from the here and now, if even just for a few moments. The essence of a subject is paramount, but I often go beyond appearances to further romanticize or idealize the subject. Using a direct approach in either oils or watercolor, colors are often mixed spontaneously for vibrant, fresh hues with a soft, impressionistic style. My intention is to take you away to a place of quiet reflection and joy.
