About the artist

In my oil pastels and mixed media paintings I want to capture a sense of the outdoors without being “on site” so as to create both a mood and suggestion of nature. In the paintings on canvas I explore subtle relationships of tone and color as I buildup layers of texture. I prefer to use soft tones and a quiet light.

Painting in a smaller format creates an intimacy between the work and the viewer as one must look closely and interact on a more personal level with the work. Painting from memory gives me a more intimate view and original interpretation. These small pieces very often evolve so as to give the illusion of large landscapes having deep space. As I am in a meditative mode I allow the work to take on a life of its own. A landscape may evolve into a seascape and I allow it “to be” and I feel that I am in that space.
Hopefully my work will “speak” to the viewer.
