My paintings are inspired by memories of special places and times. Many of us are inspired by a sight that triggers our emotions and we take a snapshot with a camera. But, does the camera record everything you experience? Does it capture your spiritual or emotional response? Only an artist can interpret and convey these things through his medium of choice. My vision for creating art is something that is interpretive, more than realism, something of myself.
As an artist I hope the visions that inspired my paintings allow the viewer's experience to evolve into a journey of discovery and imagination. Landscape paintings can occupy a physical space as much as a psychological one. Landscape paintings are a portal through which to consider nature's beauty and also a framework to explore ourselves.
