The vignettes of everyday life are what inspire me to paint, regardless of whether it’s a landscape, figurative work, cityscape, or portrait. It is my primary goal to have each artwork I create resonate with energy and the poetry of light. I follow my own ‘rule’ of painting what is important to me and feel very fortunate to be able to share that with all those who support and appreciate my work. There is nothing more gratifying that knowing that my work, which is so important to me, is appreciated by others.
