Artist Statement

I take inspiration from the magical interplay of color and light in both the natural world (sunset, dappled forest light, moonlit ocean) and in man-made environments (spotlights, reflection off a building, neon signs).  I create fields of color and light in an attempt to capture the radiance we encounter in everyday life, but beyond its standard context, by using an abstract, minimal, and direct language.  Oil paint allows me to investigate subtle transitions across a wide range of hue and saturation through careful blending and layering, a process that is meditative and engaging for me.  I seek to create paintings that evoke a lasting visual, emotional, and spiritual experience.
