Artist's Statement

I paint to explore and interpret the unique beauty found within particular moments in time.

A subject might be grand like a vivid sunset or a crashing wave.  Conversely, the scene might initially seem mundane, like reflections in a vase or light filtering through fabric.

The common thread is that each subject first captures my interest in some unique way.  Then I interpret with paint what I see, eliminating the chatter and highlighting the subject’s core beauty.

In my paintings you can see the world as I experience it.
