About

Artist’s Statement

My goal as an artist is to convey a message of beauty that I see in my every day life, through the mediums of painting and drawing.
My style varies from realist contemporary to a design oriented format.
I paint spiritual landscapes that include rainforest, cityscapes, atmospheric aerial views and seascapes........What ever I see that I love, is what I paint; to share my passion with the viewer.
