I enjoy the challenge of trying to capture the essence of what I see in 2-dimensional form. No matter whether the subject is animals, humans, still life or a scene in nature, my goal is to express the visual and emotional impact that subject has on me through depicting expressions, personality, or mood. I love color and am fascinated by the way light affects color, so I continually strive to work with colors in such a way that the resulting piece will come to life, not necessarily in picture perfect form, but with a life of its own.
