The paintings, drawings, and sculptures are inspired by the natural world that surrounds us and reflects our curious need for the quiet simplicity which that world still holds. The media implemented range from traditional oil on canvas paintings to sculptures created from branches, discarded wood, and sculpted epoxy clays.
My work explores the quiet simplicity of things. I convey my sentiments through visual interpretations of natural forms by using a subtle application of color, unique abstraction, and a delicate touch.
I intend for my imagery to counter the current onslaught of hurried visuals, increasingly limited attention spans, and ugliness that our society tends to create and focus on.
My work allows me to reintroduce the necessary link to the natural world that often dissipates as our human lives progress and become ever so complex.
Sometimes, I feel we all need to get back down to Earth-
even if only for a moment.
