Artist Statement

As an artist, I work hard and enjoy creating paintings that express both to me and to others the beauty in nature that remains in our world to explore. I often find my inspiration through my hikes in nature and photograph the views which I then recreate. With my recent works, I try to express life to influence the styles, designs, and emotions I display on my canvas.

About My Work

Living overseas has provided me with much inspiration in a different climate and to apply beautiful seascapes to canvas. My works have evolved within the last year as I’ve tried new ways of creating different styles and I have learned more with every piece. My current paths lead to a range of seascapes, landscapes, and floral scenes. As a self-taught artist, I find my skills evolving toward my own uniqueness. I work with a variety of mediums, acrylics, and varnishes, challenging myself to create new art pieces and to improve my skills. I take my time and work hard to achieve my goals, finding new techniques of my own as an artist continually unfolding. My love for nature has brought me to my roots in my current piece, displaying peacefulness, life, and clarity. I dedicate myself to developing as an artist to the best of my ability, and to enjoying every bit of it.
