"I am awe-struck by the beauty that surrounds me – the lines, the curves, the lushness of colors. While I’m painting, I feel lifted to a sacred, higher level of consciousness. In that state, I strive to find the melody in the paint and to capture the true essence of my subject."
Since 1999, I have created life-sized and larger-than-life murals in public and private sectors throughout the U.S. Currently, my style of painting could be described as “Contemporary Realism” and "Biophilic."
My public commissions include the creation of murals for the Escondido Public Library and the Oceanside Public Library, totaling over 4,000 square feet of wall art. These murals have had the tremendous power to positively influence and inspire children and their families. Showing the vibrant beauty, intrigue and crucial importance of our wildlife and sea life gives people an understanding of the incredible gift of nature, and helps instill a desire to protect these precious, natural habitats.
Having a paintbrush in my hand is the closest feeling to heaven! When people look at walls filled with the art that I’ve created, their mouths wide open, with the words “absolutely amazing” soon to follow, I feel a tremendous sense of satisfaction that I’ve been able to create such positive energy.
