Artist Statement

I paint primarily in oil, but love experimenting in acrylic, watercolor, and pastel. Growing up in the Catskills, I learned to love simple landscapes and history at an early age. I strive to capture those light filled moments that inspire me on canvas and paper. That inspiration is everywhere I am, whether on the coast of Ireland, in the Canadian Rockies, or in the valley where I live. In recent years, I've studied portrait painting, and my goal is to have those interesting faces tell a story. I work from photo references in the studio as well as being a "fair weather" plein air painter.
