Artist’s Statement: When I paint I try to create an emotional experience that comes from seeing some elusive or unrecognized beauty in an object or person or scene. Art for me is finding the beauty of everyday things.I love to paint from life whether in the studio or plein air. This gives me an immediacy of form light and color… that I can translate into paint on a canvas. I am attracted to representational forms of fine art and study the “old masters” passionately. Expressing a 3-dimensional world on a 2-dimensional canvas with paint provides a challenge and never-ending source of occupation.
