Portfolio > COASTAL SENSATION

The salty scent of waves crashing, birds floating on invisible currents, colors gleaming in the bright Southern California sun, these are my inspirations.
These occurrences are observed and felt during hikes along the coast, and then processed into semi-abstract expressions. My work is a visual expression of the senses rather than a literary representation of a landmark. These paintings do not represent the memory of a particular place, but they are meant evoke sensual memories of moments past.
I am always working with an almost impossible desire to match what I feel to what I can accomplish in paint.
