I am captivated by the powerful beauty and immensity of sea and sky. I create soft, atmospheric images interrupted by vibrant bursts of color to imitate the variances and influence of light in both nature and the human spirit. Through my work, I hope to remind viewers that we are a part of something bigger than ourselves, and that our place in the universe is meaningful.
I spend a lot of time thinking about the air we breathe. I think about the effort required for our lungs to make the exchange from air to oxygen to carbon dioxide. With a dangerous virus riding on the wind, these thoughts have occupied my mind even more than usual lately. We breathe in. We breathe out. We keep living. But I don't just want to be alive. I want to live. I want to consciously breathe with purpose. I want to live with intention and make every breath count.
