Artist's Statement

As and artist, I am constantly inspired by the world around me. Most of my paintings are of places from my everyday life. I don’t often seek out beautiful places to paint, because inspiration and beauty are everywhere, just waiting to be noticed. Being mindful and aware of my environment allows me to observe these moments as I go about my day.

In my work, I try to create a visual memory that will transport me back to the scene and evoke the same emotion I felt when it captured my attention. My hope is that it will also capture the viewer's attention and allow them to see and feel the moment as if they have been transported with me.
