As an artist, my job is to observe as much as to create. With every second that passes, light changes, colors adjust, and the slightest physical shift occurs in nature. Each piece is based on a real place, a moment that I have experienced and been inspired by. There is something unique about being alone with nature—a quiet that connects me like no other. It is only this solitude, whether outside or in the studio, that the landscape reveals itself to me. Living by the coast has provided me with numerous days studying the earth and sky. It is my hope that this work allows the viewer to reflect on the intimacy and peace this land has to offer.
