Every living being or thing in this world has an ephemeral beauty and spiritual, soulful essence. I try to observe and capture these glimpses, that are often fleeting, of everyday life and then paint my inspiration of the subject. With the use of vibrant, colorful expressionism, I attempt to evoke a mood or thought that draws empathy or an "instant knowing" response from the viewer. It's this kind of heart connection that describes the mystifying link that I believe we all have with each other and our world. It is my hope to make this connection through my art.
