My paintings examine nature and explore composition. I work as a studio artist, developing compositions and ideas from many sources of reference. My work is accessible, calming, and at times meditative. With elements of magic realism and personal symbolism, I create images that are balanced, simplified, graphic, and studied. These paintings are inspired by sights from nature and everyday life. I build upon this inspiration to create new scenes that convey the pattern and asymmetry found in nature.
