Artist Statement
Nature is such a formidable artist to compete with. Even at my most realistic, I do not ever expect to recreate the world with photographic precision. My paintings display the joy of drinking in a scene, whether that scene be a toothy mountain peak, a sweaty city skyline or a cathedral of clouds. I hope to convey not the perfection of what exists, but the thrill I feel when try to capture the scene.

What appeals to me is the calm that comes over me through the physical feel of a loaded brush against canvas, the dream state during which the best art is created, and then the delight in seeing the interpretation of the world recreated in two dimensions. The visual world is enthralling and enchanting - with its contrasts of color and light, the sharp edge of a light object against a dark one, the brilliance of blue adjacent to orange.

Georgia O’Keefe once said of her paintings, “I make them just to express myself – things I feel and want to say – haven’t words for.” As someone who has always struggled for the right words, it is essential for me to be able to use art as an outlet. It is my hope that those who view my work can sense the freedom I felt while creating them.
