"My work is born from and most closely aligns with post-impressionism and fauvism... In my own words I have referred to my work as modern impressionism. It is an exploration of color culminating in combinations of layered strokes that deliver a smack to the brain, while at the same time pulling you into a warmth of graduating hues."
"Where impressionists paint with masterful fleeting strokes, I may plan the placement of an individual stroke. In the end my work fills the gap between the past and the present, and allows me to feel a connection with those great masters."
"For me the art that I am most drawn to starts with the color combinations and how certain combinations can trigger the dopamine release in the frontal cortex. It is never a single color alone, but is the perfect harmony of juxtaposed colors that intensifies the effect."
"People do seem to connect with the feeling of the painting. I suppose it is like how a memory is warmed over time, the lights becoming warmer, colors more vivid, and the details are blurred into more of a feeling."
"I love being surprised by the explosions in my head that great artists are triggering with their usage of color."
"This deliberate nature of my work reaches to the individual strokes. When I look at one of my paintings, even after several years, I can see one of the final strokes and recall the deliberation and the reason it is there."
