I am an oil painter with a strong sense of color and composition that stems from my background in design, and from my love and appreciation of art history. I create joyful, contemporary artworks, which I paint often depending on the season. My inspiration comes from locations with a sense of calm and changing light, or from florals, or from vintage pieces with a story to tell.
The theme that ties my pieces together is an underlying sense of warmth and nostalgia – they are stories that transport the onlooker to another place.
