Watercolor, Acrylic, Gouache
As a native Oregonian, my love for Pacific Northwest landscapes comes naturally. The beauty of this area has compelled me to express myself through art. Painting allows me to focus on and celebrate the things in life that I find good and meaningful and share them with my viewers. Nature, animals, and people are what inspire me to paint. The qualities of luminosity and high color intensity make watercolors especially exciting for me to use.
It is my hope that my art captures the spirit of a scene as well as the image, enabling the viewers to have an emotional recall of something similar they may once have experienced. I want my paintings to become the embodiment of a pleasant memory that can be lived over and over again.
