Most of the subjects of my paintings are inspired by the land that my family has owned and cultivated for eight generations. It is the same land where I spent my childhood roaming through the pastureland and creating forts among the tall pines that provided hiding spots from the eyes of the grownups. The trees were a shelter, a sanctuary actually, where I would spend hours drawing in my sketchbooks and letting my imagination and spirit wander. That spirit remains forever connected to the bucolic landscapes of my youth.
