The goal I have for my art is one I attempt to seek in my everyday life; to add joy to the corners of the world people are their most authentic selves in, at home, through color and light, in layers of paint. In my own home on almost every surface are pieces I’ve added to my life that resonate with me and bring a sense of joy and peace; in essence, they make me feel truly at home. I hope to do that for others through what I create, especially in a world where we find ourselves bound by four walls more often than we used to.
I work in layers; spontaneously mixing colors as the painting unfolds rather than methodically planning each section of the canvas beforehand. My paintings flow from the small joys I find in daily life and most often incorporates the scenery I find myself in while outdoors. Faith informs the love that I have for our natural world, and that spills out onto the canvas as the only way I know how to say "Thank you."
