Artist's Statement:

"I am passionate about my art and aim to paint everyday. There is always room for growth and learning. I'm not afraid to fail, as failure is a means to success. I most love painting landscapes, and am particularly intriuged by how light creates mood. The landscape can be anything that catches my attention: country, city or ocean/water scene. My goal is to try and get the emotion of the scene across to the viewer by matching the mood of the scene with my brushwork, color palette and value/temperature range. I enjoy painting outside, often times in a large format, but also love painting in the studio, where I have more time for reflection and can produce larger works. I will forever be learning, and in turn, growing."
