I love translating the beauty I find in Nature onto canvas. I also find myself connecting deeper to humanity, to the souls around me who give me the permission to let me translate them to my canvas through portraits. I find myself being an integral part of Nature by experiencing Her and Her creations through painting. Very much inspired by the beauty of the desert of the American Southwest, I love to transcribe that which moves me, the rocks, the plants and the mountains of the desert, and put them down on the canvas via my brush.
Although, I paint the above, my real subject is COLOR.
It is my search to see the color changes in the topography, whether it be the mountains, the trees, the rocks or the angle and form changes in the face of the model – in the shadow parts and the lit parts that inspires me and drives me over and over to put down those subtle color variations and make them apparent to the viewer and share with them the magic and beauty that I strive to see.
