Artist Statement:

I've been blessed with the talent of seeing and the passion for painting. Oil is such a lucious medium. Applying lots of paint - moving it around and carving out areas is fascinating. As a contemporary plein air colorist, I strive to capture the beauty of the moment, the poetry of the atmosphere, and the notes of colorful light with the spontaneity and energy of a painter intrigued. Not painting is not an option.
