My work reflects the influence of the post-impressionist and fauvist artists. The contemporary landscapes and interior vignettes that I paint focus on strong hues and interesting shapes. I strive to create a certain mood – a place where I’d like to be – as well as an element of whimsy in these works. Sometimes, my dog Cleo or other four-legged friends find their way into a scene. I hope viewers will enjoy the feelings and the energy I wish to convey.
