Light illuminates all form. This is the central theme to all of my work. Whether it is a nude that has north light gently falling across the skin or a brightly lit landscape with beautiful flowers, light brings all of these things into our consciousness.

The color or shading that is necessary to bring the beauty of an object to life on a surface is the joy that I find in creating a piece. The process of building the illusion of form fascinates me.

There is so much joy to be had in observing the world around us. If I can bring some of this into someone's life, then I have succeeded.
