"Mother Nature is perfect. I don’t try to recreate it. I try to interpret what I have seen. I try to envision it through the eyes and mind of an impressionist. I believe that the best way to capture the oceans and her waters is by the bold strokes of oils. As you look at my work you will see the inspired use of color in hints of Van Gogh and Monet. The strokes of color suggest motion and movement giving a sense of life to each of the animals in the scenes. The same is true for water movement and landscapes. Color evokes movement in a still work."
