Artist Statment

Skies have always resonated with me. Since the beginning of time, people have searched the skies for answers to questions small and large. Be it sunrise, sunset, or during a storm – skies are an incredible and ever-changing force. 

Art offers both the artist and the viewer a break from technology. Through my career I am consciously aware of how much technology has permeated our society and changed the way we communicate, view the world around us, and spend our time. If, for the majority of your day you have your head down looking at your computer or cell phone, what are you missing? Don’t forget to take a break, look up, and see the natural beauty that is around you. It is my hope that my paintings of skies and landscapes serve as a reminder to appreciate the simple things in life.
