I love the outdoors so naturally I am drawn to painting flowers and landscapes. When light sparkles on a leaf or flower petal, glistens across a river or peaks out from behind pink skies after a rainstorm; I’m captivated by its beauty. Colors change depending upon the time of day or with the seasons and I find this exciting. It is an everchanging image of light, shadows and color. I try to capture these moments in my paintings with pigment, brushes and sometimes even my fingers to create realistic scenes with a touch of impressionism.
I often find inspiration while kayaking the rivers and lakes of Western Pennsylvania and hiking through the Allegheny National Forest. Floating around a bend and catching the light reflecting off the water or seeing light peak through the pines is my inspiration. These moments leave an imprint on my soul and make me feel like I am one with nature.
My intention through my paintings is to remind people to slow down, embrace and cherish nature and to take a moment to reflect upon the beauty that surrounds us.
