Artist Statement

My works are based on articulating a human experience which I interpret and express into a painted fiction. Within that experience, each brush stroke contains conscious thought. I often work Alla Prima, Italian for “at the first” where I complete a painting almost always from life, while the paint is still wet. I work this way because it forces audacious, concise brushwork which is intrinsic to the individual. The experience brings me closer to my surroundings, such as nature. A conscious appreciation forms, I hope to share that experience with others.

“Only through art can we emerge from ourselves and know what another person sees.”

Marcel Proust
