Artist Statement

I get inspired by my surroundings. I want to share views or scenes I have experienced, to focus on them in a way that augments and preserves the memory of the place or object. As a painter of landscape and still life, each new composition challenges, teaches and lets me relive what I have experienced. As a painter of color and abstract and fantasy, each new painting is an experiment and exploration.
