Artist Statement

Whether it is a majestic mountain scene or the more simple pastoral scenes in the area where we live,  it’s that fleeting moment in time that I strive most to capture in my paintings.  I want the viewer of my paintings to feel as though they are experiencing that moment in time.  My goal is to capture the truth about the subject without over exaggerating the color, and without too many unimportant details that can only distract the eye from the main idea, which is the feeling of the light and air.”

I have been influenced by many great artists both past and present, but my goal has always been to let my own style evolve naturally and to make my own statement.”
