Artist Statement

“From the most magnificent subject to the most humble, I desire my work to impart a sense of something beyond the physical reality we experience everyday. I find the most satisfaction in chasing that elusive trait in landscapes or architecture; when the light pierces the eye, is filtered through the soul, and streams out through the brush or pencil, in hopes that perhaps it may serve as a reminder of the grace and wonderment that is present all around us.​​​​​​​”
