I enjoy asking the question “What if...?” every day, the excitement of facing a blank surface and
the anticipation of what it will become. It’s the challenge and endless possibility of creating two
dimensional slices of life that motivates me as an artist. I’m often drawn to subjects that others
might not notice. Whether it’s interpreting the way the light falls on an old barn, the mystery of a
nocturne or the subtle beauty of a hazy morning, my goal is to capture the feeling or mood of
the scene. My hope is that my paintings will evoke a feeling of connection to a time and place
that resonates with others.
