Artist Statement ~ "Creating a new piece of art is a beautiful escape for me. I can easily lose myself in the process. It is a space where I can work and lose track of all time in the process. There's nothing more satisfying than seeing what I imagine in front of me after I've created it. I can go anywhere, I can do anything, I can be anything, when I'm painting. My interests of exploration in art are centered around wellness, beauty in nature, and the natural flow of energy in the universe. The special connection between people and nature is a theme that continuously reveals itself to me in new ways. Traveling to new cities and exploring art around the world provides inspiration to try new styles and seek out imagery for new subjects in my artwork."
