About the Artwork
Through the years I have come to realize how crucial having the beauty of the natural world to enjoy and rejuvenate me is to my quality of life. As an artist and photographer I am constantly trying to interpret my emotions on some form of paper, often with the hope of sharing with others. Every moment has it’s own special atmosphere, many bringing the desire to preserve it to be enjoyed at a later time.
My photography inspires many of my paintings and by painting I feel I am able to see more in the subjects I photograph.
