Artist Statement

Through my landscape paintings I have become attentive to the splendid drama of my everyday world; the passing of light through the day, the movement or stillness of water, or subtle shifts in seasonal color.

As a landscape painter, I find myself greatly affected by my surroundings. Along with my impressionistic response toward nature, my work took a turn after I began working in a factory studio building in Easthampton, MA. This is the inspiration for my bolder, colorful focus on industrial scenes. My goal in these paintings is to transform what could be considered mundane to beautiful.”
