Artist Statement -

My focus is to depict light in new and unique ways. With each painting I create, I explore the fundamental elements of light and how the viewer actually sees and interprets colors. I intuitively seek to mix unconventional color combinations and techniques that provide just enough information to form that image. I often reduce the subject to the elements necessary to depict light and infuse motion. As a lifelong resident of Florida, I have always been fascinated by the play of tropical light on the land, the water, and the vegetation. It is my muse and a constant source of inspiration.

The light in my paintings is not solely conveyed through the interaction of color. It is also a result of how the depth, angle, and buildup of the brush strokes capture and reflect light and shadow on each canvas. I love to create textural expressions of light and movement, surface tension and perspective.

The vision for each of my works is to bring a little more joy into the viewer’s life and to provide new ways of seeing the elements of light.
