As a landscape painter, I am always developing a greater awareness and connection to the natural environment. My objective in painting is to reflect the beauty of nature by capturing light in various states, whether by the ocean, along a wooded trail, or from a mountain top. I find inspiration through American Tonalism, the paintings of Turner, Daubigny, and Monet.
Each painting is conceived in the moment, loosely based on my plein air studies, the memory and feeling of a particular place. I want others to experience the same enthusiasm for nature through my work, the way light plays upon the landscape that invokes a particular emotion. Perhaps a childhood memory will arise or a melody will be heard, inviting you to play along. Ultimately, I hope that my work brings about a sense of peace and wellbeing.
