I’m inspired by sources such as, nature, rural settings, and modern painters from Georgia O’keefe to Norman Lewis. I use color, shapes, shading and my imagination to visualize a story of how to bring these organic elements together. My method can be impulsive and tedious, but the quote by artist Jasper Johns sums up my feelings and informs my process.
“Sometimes I see it and then paint it. Other times I paint it then I see it’ – Jasper Johns
