"I take photos during my travel or even from simply a morning walk down the hill and come back to my studio to paint it. Within this painting, I include the actual visual experience of it, the imaginative component from my mind and the emotional sentiment of the moment. Memories really draw me and help me create the feeling and the journey through it rather than just what it looked like. Landscapes and seascapes are what guide this process of abstraction".
