''My paintings include a wide variety of subject matter. Whether it is a majestic mountain scene or the more simple pastoral scenes in the area where we live, it's that fleeting moment in time that I strive most to capture in my paintings. I want the viewer to feel as though they are experiencing that moment in time. My goal is to capture the truth about the subject without over exaggerating the color I see and without too many unimportant details that can only distract the eye from the main idea, which is the feeling of the light. I have been influenced by many great artists both living and dead, but my goal has always been to let my own style evolve naturally and to make my own statement.''
