"I am inspired by painters like Sorolla, who have gone before me, lighting the way. I am intrigued with the way light bounces on objects and the unique colors it creates. I grapple with bringing my strokes, one at a time, loosely on the canvas with the desire to push the lights and temperature in the hidden shadow areas. I am forever working out the temperature of the strokes I lay next to each other as I paint.
I make art because it's impossible not to!"
