I paint landscapes because I am endlessly intrigued by the colors and feeling of my natural environment. I hope to create interesting work that makes the viewer look deeply and feel some sort of emotional connection to the painting. I work in pastels as my medium of choice because the depth of color and the soft quality of chalk is like painting and drawing at the same time.
“It is as though the artist has gently gathered all the dust in the room to sculpt an image on paper, and at any moment a fugitive
breeze could erase his eerie effort, leaving only an ephemeral imprint on one’s memory.”
