Oil on Canvas

I respond to the atmosphere and the private spaces and moments still to be found in our environment and daily lives. I am concerned with the layers of connection between our external world and that of our inner worlds, and how we relate to and are informed by our precious environment, each other, as well as our hopes and memories. I want to make visible the mysterious atmosphere of landscapes and spaces within us, our spiritual homes.

I constantly desire to paint canvases that create the feeling of space. My tools are color relationships, layers of atmosphere, and rhythmic interludes. I want each work to gently welcome viewers into a peaceful place within the painting and within themselves.
