“I am seeking. I am striving. I am in it with my whole heart.”
Vincent Van Gogh
Scenes of sky and sea are painted intuitively to evoke emotion, connect to a memory or to create a longing for a new experience. Clouds and the sea have long been a source of inspiration for me. By studying their ever-changing movement, atmospheric light and depth I push to create an ambient shift in the eyes of the viewer. My desired result is to take the viewer on a journey through my work.
And, like the viewer, I personally take a journey with each painting I create. As I paint, I am intent on drawing the audience in and allowing them the space to stop, contemplate the color, line and flow of each piece and simply breathe. The untethered beauty of clouds and seascapes lingers long after the summer months have faded.
