My paintings are a study of color, form and composition—a contemplation of the beauty and balance found in nature. My study of illustration has a strong influence on my style, which is representational but not realistic. Art Nouveau and the Arts and Crafts Movement, which is sometimes cited as a prelude to Modernism, also influence my work.
