I strive to create art that inspires and connects the simple beauty of nature to your heart and soul. Being an artist is an emotional and spiritual journey. You lose yourself in an evolutionary process of soul searching; searching for perfection – your own masterpiece – and continually search to gain complete clarity of oneself in the end. My journey is shared through my art when words alone cannot explain. My medium of oil painting is self-taught.
