Introduction I tell the story through shapes of color and light expressed with gestural brushwork and a solid design. The subject matter is is a subtle mixture of mystery, longing, light, beauty and a bit of unreachability that gives me the emotional reaction that in turn inspires me to paint. I strive for a mix of realism and looseness I find emotionally and visually satisfying"
