Spending time outside in nature I find myself calmer, more reflective and positive. Nature soothes the soul and grounds you. My acrylic landscapes and waterfronts reflect that by capturing a moment in time, showing you a breathtaking view, creating a mood, or telling a story. Through my artwork, I try to make you stop, reflect, breath and want to get outside and enjoy these beautiful moments! Either by the lake, or walking in a forest, life is beautiful and I try to demonstrate that through my artwork.
