I’ve been painting landscapes with a focus upon the sky for many years. In a time when smartphones, 24-hour news cycles, and technology fight for our attention, audiences seem increasingly drawn to the open space and calm that my paintings provide. My goal is to offer the viewer a place of peace and respite with each painting, and a mental break from the busyness that we all face every day. I hope my work  inspires people to look up to the sky often, to breathe it in, and to remember that the natural world around us is a gift we are given every single day.
