“Working outdoors has inspired my painting process. I find that being on location creates an understanding of the subject that is difficult to arrive at working in the studio.
Success for me is conveying a sense of time and place in my paintings. I'm inspired by color and contrast, attempting to organize the unlimited variation of nature into a personal statement."
