“When I paint, I am interested in bold color, energetic lines and strong composition to convey a powerful image filled with atmosphere and light. I enjoy the contrast between the spirited execution of a painting and the serenity and peacefulness of the scene. Clear brush and pastel strokes have become an important aspect of my work and bring vitality and movement to the painting.
In very simple terms, I make art because it allows me to be most nearly myself. In the creation of my art, I communicate my fundamental range of emotion and expression. It is the foundation upon which I share how I see the world around me. My studio with its smell of paint, the familiar clutter and the invitation to begin anew is the door that opens into my heart and soul.”
