"My paintings are an outlet to express my emotions of the surrounding world. After trying many mediums, I always find myself coming back to paint and brushes. In my current artistic practice, I use oil paint to create the beauty of nature, especially with subjects that involve water and light. I use bold and vivid colors to express the shapes and shadow intertwined with reality, finding magic between the seams. Using a saturated color palette, I create bold and striking imagery, contrasted between foreground and background, light and darkness. Weaving the story of nature through its own elements and flowing brush strokes, I find beauty and strength within."
