My work is an expression of my personal journey of general revelation and strives to depict the grace, wonder and complexity of the natural world in order to communicate the thrill, sublime and awe that the raw elements provokes so that each of us may:
focus on a momentary experience, unburden ourselves temporarily, and allow us to savor a simple yet profound connection to nature and the emotions that constitute our core.
My paintings are large-scale expressionistic landscapes and element studies, using bold colors and gestural abstraction to create form.

“Like the artist of every age-captivated by the hidden power of sounds and words, chorus and shapes, you have admired the work of your inspiration, sensing in it some echo of the mystery of creation with which God, the sole creator of all things, has wished some way to associate you.” Pope John Paul II – Letter to Artists
