Hi, I am a visual artist who works in the media of painting and photography. I started as a stillife photographer and focused on exploring light brush technique which allowed me to create interesting light in my stillife images. Later I moved to painting to overcome the limitation of the camera and to produce more expressive artwork. Today I focus more on landscape painting. The subjects of my paintings are trees, grass, water and sand. As a landscape painter I try to do most of my work on location. I love nature and painting outside gives me a lot of joy. I call myself a colorist. I am inspired by sun lit scenes with vibrant colors and I try to pass on this excitement to my viewers. I have found that I get the best results when I use the pure pigment of soft pastels or paint with a palette knife in oils. Both techniques allow me to keep my colors clean and bright.
