– About the Artist –
"I have always enjoyed nature and the outdoors. My art is a visual re-creation of an experience or scene I have encountered in nature.
I find inspiration in nature, especially birds and waterfowls. The vast colors of the many bird species makes creating a painting an exciting challenge for me.
I feel each of my paintings is a study in which I try to re-create the various plumages, feather textures, and shapes of birds. I cannot imagine ever exhausting subjects to paint given the number of species of birds in the world.
I strive for details in a few brush strokes and to capture a certain light or particular element in each painting. I enjoy the creative energy that art provides to me. I find art very relaxing and a welcome escape from my daily contact with technology. I am experimenting with new mediums such as oil and pastels and hope to have new works in these mediums completed within the year."
