For as long as I can remember I've had a passion for creating images through both photography and painting. In recent years, I’ve been especially drawn toward digital painting and have marveled at how closely the technology can now emulate traditional painting media. I particularly enjoy creating work that has rich textures, vibrant colours and that is a little different from the ordinary. I work at trying to expand my artistic horizons through seeing life about me with appreciative eyes and translating what I see into art. I like to think of my work as "image poetry" where the viewer brings his or her own interpretation to the image. My one and only hope is that my work may move the viewer into an area of awareness that somehow may lead to a greater appreciation of life in all of its varied textures.
