"Nature has always fascinated me and it is by far the most interesting subject for me to paint. My work is an interpretation of the way that I see the world. Growing up in New Mexico has greatly influenced my use of intense color. The New Mexico landscape and the Hispanic as well as the Native American cultures that are found here are incredibly vivid and bright with color. I would describe myself as an interpretive painter as well as a colorist. I enjoy using lavish color when I paint and I am fascinated with the northern New Mexico light.”
“I have always been mesmerized with flowers and how they look in different settings. Sometimes I see them in dazzling sunlight dancing in the wind, and sometimes I see them in a misty garden in the early morning or in the evening twilight hours. I like to capture feelings and moods when I paint. My work is somewhere in between reality and fantasy. I like for the viewer to be able to see beyond photographic reality. I think of my work as a fairy tale.”
