My goal as an oil painter is to freely use color and shape to create abstract paintings that I transform into imaginary landscapes. Some of my paintings seem more recognizable, and some less so, but they’re always expressions of my emotional attachment to my surroundings. Even though my compositions have incomplete information, they still convey a sense of place. The place will be different for each viewer based on their own interpretation of the painting.
