We all have special places and times that bring us happiness and peace as we reminisce. Our minds retain fragments of special memories. Whether it’s catching a sunset right at the perfect moment before the sun descends beyond the horizon. Or watching the ocean waves repeatedly roll onto shore, while waiting to finally capture the perfect crest with your camera. Or, walking through a forest full of glorious fall leaves, just as they have hit peak color. These memories are what captivate me as an artist, bringing back the emotions I felt in these impactful moments. We seldom experience these moments again and if we do, they are never exactly the same, each one is unique. This exhibition is about capturing those perfect moments and the joyful emotions that accompany them, bringing them to life every time one of my pieces is enjoyed.
