I paint interiors from my childhood to experience moments I have felt true sanctuary, and to connect me with the people I love.
Still lifes are never still. Always the flowers are in movement, turning in shadow and light, reaching out to be painted.
Plein-air painting is to be literally wrapped up in nature, capturing fleeting moments of time which are at once unique and reminiscent.
Small studies painted on wood panels allow me to move through ideas radidly whrever I am. The ease makes the studies both accessible and affordable.
"Painting for me is a very passionate endeavor. I see it as a diary written with pigment and brush. Being present for a series of moments can imbue each canvas with a calm power."
