I use oil and watercolor paint to capture the ephemeral quality of nature and make it a shared visual experience. Focusing mostly on organic shapes, I layer vibrant color to intensify the viewer’s awareness.
In the course of dealing with a chronic illness I find the creative process regenerative. I paint in response either to a visual stimulus, such as a unique color or shape, or to an emotion. The process of painting develops and crystallizes my own insights.
After graduation, I lived in Maine for five years. Since then I have lived and worked in Dallas, TX, Memphis, TN and now Raleigh, NC. In the summer, home is Moose Pond in Bridgton, ME where an old screen porch serves as my studio.
