Impressions of the Natural World

The paintings in this new series emerge from the intersection of abstraction and contemporary interpretations of the natural world. With vibrant colors and dynamic compositions, I strive to capture the essence of landscapes in ways that transcend traditional representation.

Ultimately, my art is an invitation to journey beyond the confines of the canvas, to explore the boundless possibilities of our natural world, and to celebrate the beauty and wonder that surrounds us, even in the most unexpected places.

Rocky Mountain Wildlife

The paintings in this series are abstract depictions of Rocky Mountain wildlife. The tactile quality of my work draws in the viewer and confronts them with a close encounter with an elusive and sometimes dangerous animal. They capture the essence of the of the animal’s primal nature interpreted in a modern style.
