Artist's Statement
" "
I am a realist painter drawing on the beauty I find all around me to create artwork. I am constantly inspired by the way light falls on a form or filters through the atmosphere in a landscape. With the right light, even an ordinary everyday object can become a work of art. I want to share my vision with others. Too many people stumble through their days oblivious to their environment. I want to help others better appreciate their world by allowing them to see it through an artist's eyes. While plein air painting one day, an old man came up to me and said, “I have been coming here to drink my morning coffee most of my life and I never realized how beautiful it was until I saw your painting.” That is the greatest compliment I could hope for.

My creation process is intuitive and uses no shortcuts. The process itself is enjoyable and meditative, especially when I am painting outdoors en plein air. I prefer to work in pastel, watercolor, acrylic, and charcoal. I usually listen to the subject to determine the media. I challenge myself constantly by using different techniques and varying subjects and media. I further hone my drawing skills with life drawing an sketches. I hope to be creating art until my final breath.
