"Although my art is often described as eclectic, it shares common themes and is often inspired by nature, my travels and experiences, and by my love of history. These themes are often interconnected in my art, as well as our world. I strive to capture, and share, a fleeting moment or a detail that is often overlooked, but one that is personally inspirational. I work in a variety of media and frequently combine techniques and media employing textures, light and color to convey my impression of a subject matter, place, culture or moment. I appreciate exploring materials, methods and ideas, while staying true to them, as they guide me to a finished piece of art expressing and sharing my interpretation.
