Artist Statement:
Painting is a way to record, express and remember. Color alone creates its own world that allows us to see our own stories within it. Creating painting series and themed studies, through a variety of mediums, helps navigate and find shared moments between the immensity of color, the fascination of landscapes and snapshots of architecture.
