I am inspired by landscapes and flora. They contain mysteries that ask to be uncovered, explored, enhanced—and sometimes not to be trifled with at all. I work from photos, drawings, and the memories I gather. Communicating ideas and feelings about the colors, textures, patterns and surfaces of these places is the soul of my work.

If you're interested in purchasing any of my work, please contact me.
