I see the world as a vibrant combination of colors, shapes and pattern. I try to reflect these in my artwork. I love the medium of soft pastel, because of its wonderful characteristics. It allows me to convey what I see onto the surface with luminosity and brilliancy.
I am particularly inspired by Southwestern landscapes, having grown up in Arizona, and now living in the gorgeous outdoors of Colorado. I also love depicting objects relating to my childhood, such as toys and dolls that bring back fond memories, as well as the strong colors and shapes of old cars and trucks.
My desire is to create paintings that are bold and different, inviting the viewers to see things in a different and unique way.
