There are many influences in my work. However the dominant theme tends to be the interaction between classical realism and abstract expressionism. I work fast and with large strokes to convey the rawness of nature. I want to leave every painting in what could be considered an incomplete state, because I believe an unrefined painting is truer to nature and to my own emotions. When earthly references are suggested rather than spelled out, space is created for the painting to move, breath and grow in the viewer's imagination.
