My paintings evoke fond memories of vacations and trips to exotic places. Like those memories, the paintings relate to the warm, happy emotions gained by the experience of travelling to distant lands. As the pace of life ever rapidly increases, we need time out to take in the view. My hope is to communicate the romantic ideal of our world as an astounding place for us to live and share. Each day begins with emotions and hopes which can be altered by our environment and vice versa. The end of the day is a chance to pause and reflect. I feel it’s important to bring a sense of spiritual calm and transcendence to our daily lives. We travel hoping to find bliss and I try to capture that bliss in my work for individuals to enjoy at home.
