Artist statement: Each wave is a dance of life and spirit, painted through the use of color, and deliberate strokes. I paint primarily with the palette knife – it gives me the opportunity to interact with paint in a very tangible, expressionistic way. For me, nature is never static and in a state of constant renewel, it's rhythms and patterns motivate my inspiration to be impulsive with the paint.
I try to paint believable moments in an expressive and slightly abstract manner to provoke one's inquisitive natural spirit. By capturing these succinct moments of a larger energy, these paintings are just simple spontaneous snapshots of a much bigger world we live in. Ultimately, I want viewers to participate by filling the details with what they can imagine so they can complete the experience mental gestures for themselves with each viewing.
