My artistry reflects a quiet rebellion against literal reality while remaining grounded in an appreciation for the beauty contained in our everyday environment. I strive to capture light in its various phases, to present subjects and detail with a looseness and freedom that do not violate the integrity of those elements. For most of my work I choose the forcefulness of a knife rather than a brush stroke to apply my palette, to create a tactile, textural painting that the viewer is free to touch, enter and be part of. I paint to share a vision with the viewer of the uncommon in the common, eliminating the unnecessary elements that distract, a wabi-sabi approach to art. A sense of serene melancholy and a spiritual longing.
