Recently I have been working with oil paint to create scenes that range from representative to whimsically surreal. I love learning and exploring the different approaches to composition, use of color, light, and the reflection of light in my work. My inspiration comes from the beauty we witness daily as well as how other artist view the world through their art. I attempt to challenge myself to represent my subject in the light that enhances a timeless quality. The more I am able to work with these mediums and concepts, the larger the world becomes.
