“My paintings come from a personal emotional response I feel from the people, places and circumstances I experience. I make paintings that explore how these emotions are evoked through the images on the canvas. The subtle play of light and texture across the structures and artifacts of the New England landscape inspire me. I build my canvases in layers of color and brush strokes that help me to draw out the personal feeling that I am experiencing and land it on the canvas. Through exploration and discovery, my process takes me through to an expression of those emotions. Through delicate shifts in tone and composition I find the right “mood” of what is I am trying to paint. I hope to evoke an essential emotion in the viewer that communicates that and draws you in, offering you a reason to pause.”
