I paint colorful landscapes with aerial perspectives and loose compositions
We all live together in the same places, but how we perceive those surroundings influences our collective identity and overall quality of experiences.
I explore the diversity of overlapping spaces and colors of the Pacific Northwest and turn them into subtle metaphors to greater understand this fast paced, ever-changing life. My finished paintings offer new perspectives of the urban growth in this rugged region, with specific implications of how evolving technology has shaped our overall identity.
I believe that sharing my work will help improve the quality of life for my viewers by fostering a sense of local pride and belonging, and by bringing bright colors and loose and energetic compositions into their homes.
