My paintings are a form of meditation and exercise in patience. Living and working in the city is energetic, exciting, and at times overwhelming. Therefore, I create work that looks peaceful and relaxing to look at. At times it is more about the paint and color itself that creates the environment rather than the subject matter itself. My goal is to bring the mind back to a peaceful and calm place through painting.
