Artist Statement

I am dedicated to painting simple still lifes, quiet landscapes, and home portraits, capturing the distinctive light and patterns of color that surround each subject. A lover of nature, painting “plein air” has become a transformative experience for me. I am inspired by such artists as Bonnard, Gauguin, Hopper and Fairfield Porter, but am mostly inspired by the dynamics of the creative process and the challenge of interpreting a scene.I love sharing and teaching my methods and inspiration to adults and children in a studio or outdoor setting.. groups or private instruction.
