"What makes my work unique is the strong contrast in my paintings followed by bold brushwork patterns using dynamic shapes and values. As an impressionist/ representational painter my work captures the light and movement of light throughout my peices with the goal of bringing a sense of peace and understanding to the viewer.
This year Im most excited about displaying my work for the first time in Canada! Currently im represented in Denver Co, Santa Barbara, CA, and Nashville TN. This is the first time my work will be shown to the Canadian public."
