I use my work to document and re-imagine places in my immediate surroundings. Although each work begins by documenting the landscape, it is soon imbued with personal narratives. In an increasingly stimulated world, these narratives often relish in the simplicity and stillness of the landscape. I use both oil painting and photography to achieve this end. Despite the differences between the two mediums, the work is united in subject matter and intention.
