Artist's Statement
I crave beauty, peace, and order, and paint subjects and settings that reflect this idyllic view of the world.

The paintings in my exhibition “Clarity” explore light, transparency, and reflections; how reality morphs depending on the surroundings and atmosphere.

My working method pays homage to the Dutch masters and the tradition of academic painting. I work from life and photographs. Watercolor and oil paintings begin as detailed drawings to which a number of glazes are applied, building deep values and rich colors. The process of completing these works may take many weeks, so I usually have several paintings in process at once. Creating artwork is both a meditation and an adventure that opens my eyes to our beautiful world.
