“Nature itself is the purest form of art in my opinion. I try to capture this beauty in my works of art and share it with the world. My artwork thrives on the love I have for trees and the abundant textures in nature. Whether it is the peacefulness of a welcoming beach or the thought provoking concepts of an abstract, nature can capture us in many different ways. I love to create mixed media artwork with heavy textures and rich colors that not only captures the world from my perspective, but also incorporates elements of nature in the actual artwork. The driftwood itself represents the flexibility of nature that can adapt no matter the setting. In some cases, it is not nature who adapts, but every other concept that adapts and bends their will to Mother Nature. I try my best to capture a small piece of nature’s beauty and share my perception with every viewer. With my abstracts I hope that these perceptions may be as abundant and diverse as nature itself. The freedom of creativity, expression, and experiences with people and other great artists fuel my desire to create and share art.”
