ARTIST STATEMENT


As I observe my environment, I search for elements of color, light or shapes that intrigue me. Just about any subject will do -- still life or landscape. The act of painting teaches me not only about the characteristics of light and surfaces, but also about the limitations (and possibilities) of paint and canvas.

I'm captivated by familiar scenes which suddenly seem dynamic in the light. I merely stop to notice … and as I paint I wonder if others notice too.
