ARTIST STATEMENT

 Nos•tal•gia: A sentimental longing or wistful affection for the past, typically for a period or place with happy personal associations.

 

​ "I  am nostalgic of landscapes once seen and emotions once felt. When I stumble upon such images, there is a connection and in that moment I feel a sense of calm.

 

The imagery I paint is an extension of the landscapes within my mind. I yearn to depict scenes that invoke a sense of nostalgia. Landscapes that make me feel lost in the scene and bring comfort. A place that is still, deafening with quietness."
