ARTIST STATEMENT

My work is a connection to my everyday: evocative colors, unexpected patterns of light or the sublime quality of ordinary objects. Beginning with canvases primed in purples, reds, yellow or black, I work to create a current, vibrant painting. The under-paintings make the colors vibrate. My paintings evolve with fearless broad strokes and bright colors from drawings, plein air sketches or photographs. While being primarily self-taught, I have combined the influence of prominent artists with whom I have studied to develop a style of my own: images - moments frozen fresh and bright.
