Welcome To My Online Studio
THERE IS NOTHING MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN WHAT GOD HAS PUT IN FRONT OF US TO ENJOY EACH AND EVERY DAY. GOD’S CREATION, MY INSPIRATION. He put the Art in my HeArt!
I am a representational landscape painter seeking to capture the poetry of nature, and I am excited to share with you the images that I have captured in my paintings.
Through The Artist's Eye
Outdoorsman & Naturalist
“God’s Creation – Nature is my inspiration simply because of the endless subject matter and surprises. Although I prefer to paint nature themes, I’m open to other things that may catch my eye. Throughout my career, I have explored with various themes, subjects, and mediums. As an artist I am always a work in progress, and there is always something to learn. Exploring and collecting material for paintings is a great adventure for me, and always a thrill to wonder what’s around the bend or beyond that ridge. I like to create a sense of place that is somewhere but nowhere in particular. I hope each and every viewer sees and takes something a little different from my work, and has an experience rather than just viewing a picture. My goal is not to paint life, but to paint life into my work and create an emotional connection that will inspire my viewers.”
Why Painting Landscapes Are Special to Me?
When I am in nature, it envoks a feeling and intensity within me. This is what speaks to me, and draws me in. It is critical to me to capture this vitality, and rich diversity of the scene. I strive to implement this emotional context into a landscape painting. It is because of this, that I try to paint such reality into my paintings. I want my viewers to feel the same emotion.
I am not only relying on the knowledge that I have gained over the years, but I keep myself open to the surprises that pop up during the painting process. It’s like being on the edge; Sometimes I fall, and other times new and unexpected possibilities of expression, and technique become available to me. Because I am not afraid to be on the edge, I continue to improve my painting style and techniques. If I manage to maintain this fragile balance, a work of art is created that I am proud to put my name on, and share with others.
