As an artist, I have an intimate emotional and visual connection with each painting. I work organically, staying in the present moment and being open to what reveals itself to me as I watch the painting evolve. I have learned to trust the process without knowing precisely where it will lead.
I am captivated by the incredible beauty of our world and the glory of its ever changing panorama of patterns and colors. As I savor the sky, ocean and lushness of the Earth, I feel uplifted and am inspired to communicate the sense of awe that their beauty evokes within me.
Their majesty suffuses my psyche while I am painting, and as I work, I am intrigued by the interplay of color next to color and by the dynamism of the composition as it emerges. Finally, when I feel the painting captures that unknown something satisfying to me, I know I must stop and free the painting to have a life of its own.
