Artistic inspiration comes from many places. I believe that most artistic inspiration -- the need to create -- comes from within. Every artist has a muse or an image that speaks to them and allows them to create a personal language. My image is the sky. That is where I derive my inspiration and I translate the power and spirit that it possesses into my artwork. In my travels, I have encountered many places where the sky seems to envelop me. Though the paintings are inspired by specific places, my goal is to have you, the viewer, create your own personal connection to my work by remembering a time and place where the sky was significant to you.
