Artist statement: 

“I create imaginative figure and animal paintings inspired by nature and emotion. My latest prism paintings take everyday scenes and subject matter and applies a contemporary cubist-like style to them. The idea one day arose from noticing my paintings leaning behind a large piece of stained glass (creating stained glass was a favorite hobby of my grandfather). Applying this prism style to my oil paintings in triangular patches of color creates a kaleidoscope-type image, where the viewer experiences a captured moment in time.  My most recent paintings include an abundance of bursting florals and butterflies, inspired by the old Dutch Masters, and abstractly referencing themes of awakenings, seasonal metamorphosis and the beauty of the world."
