“I am in awe of God’s whole creation and in love with the great outdoors, where I find peace for my soul and inspiration for my art. The scenes I paint are based on experiences I’ve had exploring on foot, bike, and skis. I use palette knives to build texture, giving a realistic feel to the natural elements. I add foil circles and accents to reflect the light and I apply acrylic paint in an impasto technique to create movement in the sky. The result of combining these realistic and whimsical components is a finished piece that represents what I feel while I’m out exploring: Uplifted, Tranquil, Wonder, and Love.”
