My paintings are basically a reflection of what I see around me that is beautiful or curious, but usually a part of everyday life. I love scenes that have distinctive lighting or reflections in them, and I feel that this aspect can add to both the beauty and appeal of the setting.I often include figures in my work (human and animal), I love the way light models their forms. It’s so wonderful when light and shade merge to create an interesting shape. With or without humans present though, I want to paint a piece that calls to the viewer, creating a place where they would like to be or which continues to intrigue them – – a peek from my personal point of view.
