My style is a balance between traditional representational painting and impressionism, based on my desire to create harmonious feeling of peacefulness and beauty. I strongly believe in the importance of positive emotions in our stressful lives, and I hope that my art evokes feelings of peace, happiness and well being in those who view it.

My styles vary as widely as the media I use, and I draw inspiration from everything around me. Exploring colors is a dominate theme in most of my artwork. When asked what my favorite color is, I'm likely to reply, “the whole rainbow!” My individual art works vary from serene landscapes to playful twists on a theme (like unexpected puns).
