I paint the small wonders of the everyday. The ordinary things that go unnoticed; an apple, a flower, a rock, a piece of rope. I focus on a tiny section of a photograph, usually an inch or a quarter of an inch, and magnify it. There is something wonderful about looking at a tiny piece of paper and revealing the hidden magic that lies within an object or element of nature; the organic forms, the movement, the colors. By turning the minuscule into majestic, I celebrate the infinite beauty of our environment.
