About the Artist
“My paintings capture the essence of my
experiences expressing them in a thoughtful,
beautiful way using light to illuminate and to
create an atmospheric glow in my paintings.
They come from the desire to share the
beauty of nature that I see whether it is in
my landscapes or still lifes.
I’m drawn to the colors of fleeting light on the landscape in sunsets, moonlight and
early morning which I try to portray with realistic color. But I will also push the color
if it’s necessary to convey how I feel about the scene. I paint what excites and inspires
me, color combinations, lighting effects, and contrasts in elements, painting in rich,
luminous color and expressive, painterly brushwork. “
