Artist Statement

What inspires me to paint: My family and friends. The landscape — not
just the beauty I see, but the way a place sounds, the air I breathe in
and smell, the way it makes me feel. A good book, poem, or song. Flowers
and animals. The smell of oil paint and the way a long-handled
paintbrush feels in my hand.

If you look closely at my work, you’ll see imperfections. Sometimes my
art looks unfinished. I embrace it. I paint loosely and simply, and I
want my paintings to offer a quiet pause to the viewer.

I have always loved to draw and paint, and I was encouraged by my
parents and grandmother at an early age to pursue art. Before I began
painting full time, I dreamed of a verse in scripture, “Aspire to live a
quiet life, to mind your own business, and to work with your own hands.”
I didn’t really know how that verse would come to impact my life and art
as much as it has. I’m a believer and follower of Jesus Christ, working
with my hands for His glory, not mine. I hope to bring others closer to
Him through this gift of art.
