ARTIST'S STATEMENT: As a painter of landscapes, I find inspiration everywhere: in the colors of summer, an afternoon’s shadow, the shapes in the sky.I begin as an observer and end an interpreter. My process is investigative, a search for the spirit, a rush to connect the angles of color and the shadows to the light. Through painting, the landscape loses its concrete meaning on the canvas. It distorts and abstracts, and the essence of the image emerges. The result allows onlookers to cast their imagination onto the painting. They are transfixed, moved, and transformed by its impression.
