"To me, there is a spiritual and emotional experience of being human on this Earth. In each painting, I express the feelings that are deeply rooted in human nature, while exploring our connection to each other and to a force far beyond knowing. The mysteries and beauty of the natural world, as well as our symbiotic relationship with it, deeply inspire me. I use oil paints to translate emotions and sensations powerfully through portraits of one interacting with the elements around them, letting go and coming back to nature and self."
