The primary aspiration of my work is to investigate the link between the subconscious mind and the natural world. I work in an intuitive and unconscious manner to express the sublime qualities of natural landscapes and phenomena. Embracing the materiality and depth of oil paint, I explore textures ranging from heavy impasto to thin washes of color. The imagery lies on the boundary of abstraction and realism, allows each individual to craft their own interpretation of the work. Ultimately, I strive to make pieces that resonate with the emotions of the viewer and provide an uplifting and healing experience.
