Artist Statement

Around every corner is a painting: the rolling hills, the picturesque creeks, and historic areas near my home in rural Maryland. Painting is my passion, and I am inspired to characterize the still undeveloped areas revealing the heart and soul of my beautiful home state. I also paint still lifes in the classic tradition. The variations in light defining subtle textures and nuances of shapes inspire and challenge me to express my passion. Whether it is the weathered roof of an old barn or the delicate petal of a peony, I express these variations attempting to make each painting a reflection of my emotional response and inner truth.
