I paint to evoke emotion, capturing moments of emotion in each painting. These emotions stimulate memories. With a memory, our imagination starts to play adding sounds, smells, details, wishes, and dreams.
I capture moments.
My work's distinctive style combines vigorous brush strokes with a counterpoint of intricate detail. I am in love with oil paint and the lushness of colors that I mix. Get up close to one of my paintings to find the details and then, step back, to see the life within my brush strokes – they are flowing, often unconscious.
“The goal of painting is to give the surface a life-force,
not just the appearance of the thing.”
