I grew up on the coast of Massachusetts and would spend sun up until sundown at the beach. I started to paint my ideas of the ocean that are inspired by my memories and feelings of time spent seaside. In addition to the sea, I find inspiration from my annual trips to New Orleans. In 2012 I spent a summer rebuilding post Hurricane Katrina. I was inspired by the people, culture, and vivid colors the city had to offer, as well as the calm and serenity in the bayou. The colors, depth and layers of New Orleans transformed my way of painting. I work with multiple layers of paint; I want the viewer to look at my paintings and notice something new and exciting each time they see it.
