Artist Statement
In my artwork, I am seeking to find the simple essence of a thought, idea, or object, to notice things that are passed by in our busy lives, or to see something in a different way. Basic shapes, lines, and a focus on color are the main components that repeat themselves throughout my body of work. Abstraction is a common thread and, in some ways, my attempt to simplify the world I see around me and narrow the scope to what I feel is most essential, basic, and necessary.

Most of my artworks are inspired by nature or daily observations of my surroundings. The natural world and environment are very important to me. I do not want to improve on nature or represent it realistically, but try to portray its simple beauty, find its underlying elements and present it in a unique way.
