The forests are alive. I paint surreal landscapes on gesso board. Trees dance in the moonlight and sway in the breeze. They shed leaves and sow seeds. Trees have stories to tell, and I tell their stories with my paintings. From budding leaves in the spring to brilliant colors in the fall to the empty branches in the winter, trees symbolize the cycle of life. My paintings are about these cycles and the emotions they evoke. In addition to my tree people paintings, I enjoy painting still lifes.
