I think of my style and my work as a combination of realism and impressionism. I paint from life whenever possible and work diligently to capture its nuances. I am currently focusing on capturing figures and figures within expressive landscape settings.

No matter what I did or tried, I couldn't change or deny that I am a dreamer and believe in it, and thanks to my "trademark" I am living my dream. A dream of being an artist.
Sensitive, emotional, sentimental and whimsical may be some of my personality, But I rely on these feelings to inspire my art work. I like things that touch me quietly and simply. Little things, things we see everyday... falling leaves, waving trees, unnamed wild flowers, fog rolling over the hilltops, a small stream passing a grassy field, crows perched on top of a ruined wall under a gray sky... They speak to me in the most pure sound of beauty. I don't really need a cry-my-eyes-out or laugh-my-ass-off kind of moment to feel emotionally inspired. I seek a feeling that might woosh past in a second. But that second of emotion combines a complex faint taste of sweetness, bitterness, happiness, and sadness. That is the precious moment that I want to capture and share. It is a kind of natural beauty that I thirst for. Not glorious or fancy, just something simple, something pure.
I think of my style and my work as a combination of romanticism, realism and impressionism. I paint from life whenever possible and work diligently to capture its nuances. I am currently focusing on capturing figures and figures within expressive landscape settings.
