I paint landscapes in an attempt to capture the place and moment. Trying to capture certain types of light is also very important to me. In my opinion, a characteristic of a good landscape painting is that it takes you to that specific place. It should almost feel like you are there and are able to walk into the environment. I usually take photos that strike me with inspiration and create dramatic visuals back in my studio. I often infuse them with my own feelings and style that create narratives or states of being.
