“I believe the artistic journey is like a musical instrument, taking time and practice to master. What people call talent is better described as a passion that gives profound joy every moment the artist is deep inside the discovery of a beautiful scene. My own artistic life is dedicated to achieving the observational skills and nuance that makes communication through a simple well-placed brush stroke as beautiful and descriptive as a perfect word in a poem.”
Let my art be inspired by, yet free from what I see around me. Let it take me to places I’ve never been before. Let my art evoke wonder at the mysteries of our planet and life itself. My art, like my art-making practice, is about discovery. The alluring push and pull of wet pigment on the surface, and the intermingling of colors joining to make new hues in an ever-changing kaleidoscope of shapes and textures, these are the things that keep me motivated to make art.
Writer Anais Nin once said, “We don’t see things as they are, we see them as we are.” My work must tell a story. A story that is open so that each viewer might unravel their own story when looking at the work. I like to think my paintings are meditations that tug at our feelings, drawing on memories and our unique consciousness.
Everyday scenes intrigue me the most; be it a barren landscape, boats in the harbor or city life on a busy day. I observe how the light plays into the scene and reflects off the subjects. I work to capture that light while enhancing my point of interest in the painting.
