I used to think that 'paradise' was limited to just tropical places. I was much younger then... now the truth is, paradise is everywhere - all you have to do is look with your heart.

We as humans have created so much, but nothing compared to the creations of nature. Therefore, much of my work is dedicated to depicting the immense beauty of nature. I heard once, nature imitates art, and art is an interpretation of nature. I enjoy being that medium, that muse that interprets the awesome aspects of nature into art that we can all enjoy.

Weather in acrylics or watercolors, the flowing aspect of watermedia paints and the way they work with reflected light are my favorite ways to paint.

I paint to remind us all of paradise. And to remind us all of the inspirations that nature has to offer us.
