“Art for me is a way of connecting shapes to tell a story. My intent with each piece of art is to capture and connect to the moment; connecting people in shared experiences, to this place and time. I’m partial toward painting landscapes. These beautiful scenes provide amazing contrasts of light, shadow, color and grays all offering great illustrations of life’s own journey. As elements of light and time displays shapes and movement, these same elements often mirroring our own storyline.”
