FIGURATIVE AND WILD LIFE

The world is an incredibly magical place.  Even since I was small I would envision faeries in landscapes.  They were symbolic for the spirit inherent in living things, a way to personify that spirit.  I found them in trees, in mushrooms, in the way the light dappled on the waters surface, on the breeze rustling the leaves.  Faeries were everywhere. I paint subjects like wild life and especially more narrative figurative work I really like to let my imagination run wild.  In these pieces I really try to capture the essence of the living creature, their soul, what their mysticism might be, how they might rejoice in the natural world around them.
