Artist Statement

Think of a time when just for a moment you were completely happy. When the pieces of your life fit together and made a wonderful sense. Such intense emotions always have a setting. A painting can hold that place and recall for us for those feelings. I am painting places where I have experienced intense happiness. My paintings are a contemporary re-imagining of the romantic panoramas of the 19th century American painters
