My paintings deal with the relationships between the idea of a place, color, and implied narrative. The landscapes I paint evoke memories and feelings of an actual location through the combination of these elements, but the places remain unidentified and details are altered. I’m interested in how far removed a viewer can be from the physical site but still be able to grasp the integral essence of the place.
I'm interested in the stories the colors and shapes of an environment convey. I want people to feel a connection to a painting, whether it reminds them of somewhere they've been or somewhere they long to be.
