“My work is intrinsically simple and straightforward. My focus is to reproduce those moments of connection and change that happen when you watch the sun light up the clouds as it sets beyond the horizon. In my most difficult times, watching the sunset every day helped me to be mindful and always present in the moment. My hope is to create work that reminds me of that mindset and that brings joy and peace to others when they look at and use my artwork.”
