Artist Statement

My work is inspired by the natural environment as well as objects I find interesting to paint. I am drawn to painting landscapes and seascapes; both from photographs and plein air. I work in an impressionistic style; with visible brush strokes. The influence of light, gradation of colors, shadows and reflections on both water, land and objects influence my paintings. Local landmarks or icons of a community are also a recurring theme, along with vintage beach bikes. 

I seek to infuse my work with visual energy to elicit a mood or memory for the viewer.
