I look to find the mystery within the mundane. A dying sunflower or some old tree gets blown up in scale and becomes something new, a scene where time is absent, or maybe where time is forever. My original experiences, when hiking through forests or roaming the roadside, serve as a starting point for the paintings. I don't intend to recreate an experience like that in the works, but rather to create a completely new experience in the paint itself.
Just look with your eyes, you'll see.
