I paint landscapes on location, still life paintings from observation, and works from memory and imagination. In my paintings, I try to capture the beauty and essence of each subject. My main focus is landscape painting, and I am constantly seeking new and diverse subjects to explore. I am interested in light, seasons, moods, and emotions inherent in the places I paint, with the goal of providing the viewer with a vivid, familiar, and memorable sense of place and time.
