I develop richly-colored paintings of every-day subjects which, for one moment, I was able to see for the little capsule of beauty and completeness they offer the world.
I enjoy experimenting with composition, perspective, geometry, layering and other tools in the painter's toolbox to explore alternate ways of capturing the wonder experienced in a particular moment in time.
Viewers of my work often make a connection with something from their own experience that is important and joyful. The familiar subjects and representational style are both accessible and resonant. Seeing oneself reflected in art made by another reminds us of our shared humanity in a way that is both comforting and empowering.
