Having gained much insight into
many different cultures of Northern Europe, Central
Asia, and North America, I feel that my work has been
greatly inspired by endless celebration of life.
Oil on canvas is the medium I use
for most of my work.
Art allows me to bring out the character of rivers, forests, clouds, cities, and people;
to capture the surrounding world manifesting itself in the desire to live, love, and create.
