"Light is the key to beautiful shapes! I see the world in shapes as I try to simplify what is in front of my eyes and paint interesting, varied shapes and patterns of light and dark. It seems magical, as I watch the depth, gradation and contrast of the warm and cool colours appear on the canvas.
I invite you to look at my paintings and see how everything works together to make a lovely visual story. Our Creator God does a perfect job of crafting beautiful artwork in a moment. I am attempting to embody that creation so that you will see it through my eyes and share the moment."
