Painting has become my passion. I enjoy creating realistic works as well as abstracts. This allows me to create a wide variety of series with my own unique style. When I begin my projects, I focus on an emotion or overall feeling I would like to convey. I focus on high contrast and interesting light structures to develop compositions with movement. Most of the shapes are organic with lost and found edges which encourages you to use your experiences to complete the composition. I basically try to simplify the elements but still maintain the essence to allow the spirit of the painting to emerge.
