Artist Statement

I enjoy capturing the quiet, simple and peaceful moments of daily life. These captured glimpses represent quiet corners, favorite places, and intimate moments.  Color, value and impressionistic brush work all work together to convey a sense of peace and serenity. Close friends and family members are often the source of my inspiration and are frequently asked to model for specific themes and concepts.

The deeply personal bond and connection that I share with my surroundings, relationships and home environment is depicted in small still life paintings, sunlit garden scenes, engaging portraits of family and friends and our rural landscape. Paintings are staged in warm interiors or sunlit gardens. Many of the fruit and vegetables represented in the still life paintings are grown in our home garden, picked from local community trees or received as gifts from neighboring gardens. The naturally occurring seasons of Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer are evidenced as the backdrop to many of my paintings. They are a subtle and symbolic reference to the seasons of life. The intimate and sometimes candid portrayals of daily life, representing subjects of varying age, gender and background capture experiences and moments in time that are common ground in most human experience. It is my intent to offer a contemplative pause and reflection upon these quiet moments with the intent to bring peace, restoration and renewal to the soul.
