The beauty of painting is that it can say what words cannot. Depicting the ethereal nature has always played an important inspiration for the art that I make. In the landscape, it has many faces. 

The new work in the Habitat Gallery was made while “sheltering in place” and explores internal landscapes yet still references my interest in air and water themes. It is interesting to see the common visual language between the paintings and how they are talking to each other.

In the Elemental Gallery, the work begins with a structure based on the elements- fire, air, water, and earth. Themes in the individual paintings vary to depict the connections between us: environmentally, spiritually, emotionally, and aesthetically. Color is tied to the emotions and diffuses and reflects off the viewers experiencing the work.
