STATEMENT

"I love to paint and I love being outside. Combine the two, and you get an “en plein air” painter. That is primarily how I paint. For me, being outside and having a heightened awareness of light, air (or lack of it!), and color is what puts me in my happy place.

I hope to bring an awareness to the natural beauty that is around us, the impact we each have on our surroundings, the importance of being aware and perhaps urge the viewer to appreciate and help preserve the common beauty in his or her own world.”
