STATEMENT “My artworks are influenced by nature, painting on location and the understanding of color, brushwork and design developing from the practice. Using a simple composition, with a few major shapes as a starting point, a finished painting emerges. Working in oil, with a limited palette of five or six colors, a natural color harmony occurs. My brushwork is broadly applied and accentuated by generously layered, textural paint, creating a nearly sculptural quality. In their approach, my paintings are contemporary realism. With a primary interest in simplified form I explore naturalistic landscapes and parts of our built environment evoking nostalgia and a sense of place.” “My lifestyle is fairly simple and contained, nature oriented and also punctuated by new things; my artwork reflects this personal aesthetic. Visually describing a subject without unnecessary embellishment and allowing the viewer to quietly participate is the experience my artwork offers.”
