I spend a significant number
of days each year outdoors studying and pondering nature, effects
of light, atmosphere, weather conditions, seasons, as well as
movement caused by light, clouds or a busy street. These moments
out of doors are for me, an essential muse.
I personally believe in a powerful,
wise, and loving Creator who made the earth beautiful for our
benefit; therefore, I see the beauty and underlying harmony of
the landscape as an expression of love towards us. I find great
joy and fulfillment in studying nature directly and seeking out
the best elements in order to convey these emotions. For me,
a successful painting becomes not just a depiction of the physical,
but a medium for connecting with our own spiritual natures.
My work continues to evolve as
a combination of traditional techniques and personal innovation.
In my paintings, I place particular importance on the light,
atmosphere and surface quality of the painting. For me, a brushstroke
should convey an emotion as well as an accurate physical depiction
of time and place. Through the process of placing each stroke
I work to convey my thoughts and feelings of the landscape; endowing
the piece with an awareness of place as well as a thoughtful
and sincere emotion.
