My work expresses freedom and self-discovery and is based around those early memories of summer exploring the beauty of the outdoor world. I create mostly figurative art, with the subjects in nature and usually with a bird. The images are dreamy, almost surreal, with patterns and vivid colors.

I find peace while creating and viewing my art. It takes me to another place; it sets me free to dream.
