I'm a creator, and visual art is my primary outlet. For me, creating is compulsory, and this compulsion results in different types of artistic expression depending on the tools I use. My paintings on canvas lean towards abstract expressionist action paintings; while my digital art is more of a fluid expressive realism.
I love hiking and being outdoors, and I'm really tuned in to the beauty of the natural world. Many of my works are landscapes in a real or imaginary sense, influenced by places I've been or seen. Rocks, trees, and clouds are an endless source of motivation for me. The textures, colors, compositions, energies and movement of Earth resonate deeply with me, and are all sources of inspiration for my paintings.
In addition to the natural world, I've always been fascinated by ancient civilizations, and the vestiges of the human imprint. The art, structures, symbols and mythologies of our predecessors provide an infinite source of material to draw from.
