"My paintings begin long before the first brush stroke on the canvas. A walk in the woods, a stroll through a garden, or a drive through the countryside is the beginning and inspiration for each painting. I move closer, viewing what is before me from less common perspectives and taking note of small details. How the light plays on different surfaces and the feeling I get from being there all resonate in my heart and mind, eventually becoming a finished painting. My goal is to bring attention to this beauty so that it resonates with others in a similar way."
