As for what I paint, well, people often comment that I must really love trees, leaves, and flowers, but my work is much more about mood and emotion than subject. I am intensely affected by light and color, and that is what I actually paint.
When I am painting an individual painting, something about the idea really has to get me before I go ahead with it. When I see an integrating shape, or color or line I think is beautiful, then start to create a composition around it, my reaction is visceral. I feel a nervous excitement when an idea appears to really work.
Ironically, if I had to state my ultimate goal for my art, it would be to take away the edge of nervousness and to create a sense of calm similar to what I feel after an hour of yoga. I want to use light and color in line and to bring myself into the moment and create a space for quiet and peace.
I hope that my unique perspective of our surroundings are enjoyed by, patrons, curators, and collectors as my work brings light and joy to the lives of all who view my work.
