                       ARTIST'S STATEMENT
 

Texture and the effects of light and shadow have become important elements in my paintings. I am fascinated with the glow of reflected light on various surfaces.

 

Painting on location on a regular basis has opened many doors for me. I cannot improve nature, but I can rearrange and simplify it to correspond to what I feel.

 

Traveling abroad has opened up new vistas of color and texture for me. I paint to convey the enjoyment and excitement of what I see.
