Inspiration from the Masters
These images were inspired by some of my favorite painters, including Andrew Wyeth, Edward Hopper, Van Gogh and others. Each had a fascination with emotion, space and texture. I share that fascination.
Having spent a few years painting with oil on canvas, I think I still see the world through that kind of artistic filter. Using textured layers over my images recreates that same feeling I had manipulating paint.
University of Life Experience
There is no better education than getting out and experiencing the world for yourself. What I have gathered, living on the road, is that people in the United States are as diverse as its landscape. There is such rich history to be uncovered in every town, big or small. I'm grateful for the opportunity to learn and I think it has given me a better appreciation for this wonderfully complex world of ours.
