I am an artist that primarily works with acrylic paints on either canvas or museum quality Gessobord. I am drawn to color and texture and find mixing colors to be a process with endless new discoveries. Recently I find myself being drawn to and influenced by other surreal artists both past and present. I am inspired by trees and shadows. Although I paint other subjects, I always find myself returning to trees. To me, being an artist means exploring subject matter, experimenting and improving techniques.
