About the Artist

Artist Statement

My deep appreciation for detail strongly influences my painting and my life in general. The impact of light on subtle, simple elements is a constant source of intrigue and inspiration for me. Transforming a blank canvas to portray a subject’s beauty and essence at a single moment in time is incredibly fulfilling and challenging. Immersing myself in this process enables me to access a very peaceful, meditative and life giving awareness, with each painting encouraging a deeper level of non-dualistic thought and understanding.
