All through my life I have enjoyed & explored art in various forms. I have come to recognize that I often perceive my surroundings based on how I might represent them in a painting…light through tree limbs, a composition on the side of the road, the turn of a head. Painting is both a challenge and a refuge. It’s a way for me to celebrate the delights of life and the splendor of our world.
Composition, color and brushwork have emerged as crucial elements in my work. I use my color and brush strokes to evoke mood; perhaps bright vibrant shades and staccato brush marks for energy or a more subdued palate and quiet smooth brushwork to reflect stillness.
My work tends to focus on subjects of timeless beauty: nature, pastoral landscape, still life and the occasional abstract. I love the thought of artwork enduring and being appreciated over time, so I strive to create pieces with enduring & wide-ranging appeal.
