Artist’s Statement

Paintings of landscapes inspire me, from Maui to the Midwest, I paint whatever surrounds me. Wherever I am painting I love to chase the light.

"I paint because I cannot not paint, if that makes any sense. It is my spiritual path, one that delivers me from the stress of this crazy world. I love the experience– from sight to sound, from temperature to atmosphere, and then channeling all those feelings from head to hand, re-creating the vision in front of me on canvas. Painting takes me out of my mind and into real peace and happiness. Take a moment from your busy day and indulge yourself."

 "Nature stopped at some point and you went further and further with it. Great Art picks up where nature ends." - M. Chagall.
