Growing up in a family of classical musicians made me very aware of patterns and rhythms. In my late teens I switched my focus from piano to oil painting, but my general approach to creative expression has remained quite similar. I start by taking a complex scene in nature, such as a tangle of tree branches or an overgrown field, and emphasizing the beauty of the relationships of color, light and forms. Finding a harmony in the design is what draws me to a specific subject. My approach to my pre-painting drawing tends to be very traditional. I keep shapes and perspectives realistic and even simplistic. Where I enjoy taking liberties is with color. My goal is to capture the emotional experience of being in nature, and to do this I deviate from realistic tones to pure fantasy. Blue trees, a green sky, hot pink fields, these are the things that get me excited about painting.
