My travel experiences have influenced and shaped the direction I have taken in my work. Traveling and experiencing different cultures has had a huge influence on my style and purpose. My trips to Italy, Japan, Greece, Ireland and England inspire me to convey light, color, lushness and realism, as well as simplicity and moodiness. The layering techniques made possible by oil paint allow me to show the sumptuous timelessness I strive for. I also like experimenting with pastels, printmaking and cold wax. I hope my paintings will transport you to another time and place as well as give a feeling of serenity.
