I'm a painter living and working in Texas. Expressive use of color and form are hallmarks of my work as I attempt to translate my view of the landscapes I encounter into serene moments frozen in time. I grew up seeking, drawing, and exploring within the Texas Hill Country. In college, I studied behavioral science and multidisciplinary fine arts which suited my need for reflection, making, and context. As my work has developed, I've learned to embrace and trust applied observation. I draw inspiration from spending time outdoors and absorbing the rhythms of nature. Representational and recurring themes in my paintings include horizon lines and the architecture of nature.
