"The beauty of the landscape talks to me…it is the starting point of my conversation with nature as I experience it, living life on the Pacific West Coast.
My conversation is defined by three elements, which stand out for me in a very prominent way. Overlooking the ocean on a daily basis, expanse definitely is one of those elements hard to deny. The second prominent element is light, which to me is mesmerizing. It leaves a signature on whatever is present. It defines the moment as is. Last, but not least, the different textures as they play with my senses. The bark of a tree, the softness of the mosses, the sand on the beach, the smoothness of a reflection in the water….
My goal is to capture the beauty, the moment and the feeling the landscape shares with me, so I can share that experience with others. Painting for me on one hand is like a merger with nature; on the other hand there is this awareness of shaping the image."
