Biography


Artist’s Statement:
 
Painting has given voice to the moments or places that capture something inside me.
 
I am naturally prone to being in the moment. Whether at my easel, maybe in a meadow working quickly, laying down color on a canvas, or scouting a country road to find that place and time when the light brings to life a field or house. Sometimes the sun streaming through a window stops me in my tracks while walking through a room. It's in those moments that something stirs in me that just may spark the next painting.
Much of my growth as a painter comes from putting in daily time at my easel. Harder to quantify are years of observing life - the turn of a creek through a field, standing at the edge of a marsh scanning the horizon for a flight of swans, or walking through the woods pushing leaves aside to uncover wildflowers. I seem to be hard-wired to 'live in the present' with an overwhelming urge to not miss those fleeting gifts in the busyness of life. I learn so much from workshops, books, magazines, podcasts, and videos. What a great time to be a painter - such an endless array of resources! Regular trips to the coast of Maine inspire much of what I love to paint. Between the ocean, the coast, the villages, and the galleries - it has a deep hold on me. Associate Member, American Impressionist Society and Oil Painters of America.
