While I look to Nature as inspiration, my goal is to capture a special moment in time. Sometimes it is simply light and color that seem to play their way across my canvas; at other times it is the strength of rocks and trees, the rage of crashing surf, or the gentle meandering of water. My emotional response to my environment is what gives me the passion to paint.

I am particularly interested in the way the paint handles on the brush as it touches the canvas. How music influences my response to color and rhythm in my work. To be able to transcend to the place where time stands still is the ultimate luxury.

I do not consider myself a realist. I, purposefully, do not give you too much information. I hope you, the viewer, will bring to the painting your interpretation of what you are seeing. Simplicity and composition are my main principles for action.
