The world around me inspires my artwork, and when I am painting time stands still.
From a young age, my father taught me to look at the world with keen curiosity and question everything. My knack for observation led me into mechanical engineering where I could continually ask questions and invent new ideas. My decade-long career in research engineering gave me technical abilities for drawing and opportunities to travel; while in the meantime, I just kept painting what I saw and developing my own artistic style.
My paintings are of locations I’ve experienced, they all have vivid personal stories tied to the place that take the viewer back to their own personal experiences and nostalgia. I love connecting with people through my artwork – our memories and location are woven together despite being there at different times.
Most recently, I paint scenes of the Pacific North West with its kilometers of seawall with spectacular ocean and mountain views and the cities I visit throughout the world. My unique style is from layering bright colors of acrylic paints and glazes on top of each other until the location just starts looking familiar.
Please contact me to share stories of a specific place you are reminded of from my artwork, to visit my studio or to inquire about a specific piece. Let’s stay in touch through social media as I share my current artistic adventures on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
