My Figurative Landscape paintings are intended to visually convey that people and nature are inextricably connected.  Although we often lose ourselves in our fast-paced lives, my hope is that we are reminded to slow down and contemplate how we are interconnected with others and the world around us.

What began as an idea, slowly developed through a combination of sketches, photo reference and experimentation by layering images in Photoshop.  I often blur or filter my digital image so that I  feel less restricted by detail and free to allow colors and textures to develop in the painting.
