For me, painting is a way to combine exterior experience with the inner life. I combine what I see & feel in an attempt to get beyond the literal, and find a new harmony in expression with the paint. I work in the oil medium in a mostly layered way. My energetic 'signature soft palette' is a voice that allows me to decipher and define my thoughts and feelings through my art practice. My work is largely semi abstracted landscapes and botanicals worked from memories and intuition.
“The emotional connection of a painting is an intangible thing. It is an energy; hovering between artist and viewer. It does not matter what the emotional connection is, just that it is there."
