Artist Statement:

I'm inspired by the simple, unassuming beauty of the relationship that exists between a horizon line, the light of an expansive sky & the changing mood of the day. My work begins at a place, time or experience I've had living in the Finger Lakes region of New York. The subject is captured through a photo, sketch & memory, but the painting takes on a new identity in the studio. Paint is applied using diluted, transparent layers to build up a soft, atmospheric quality and allow the painting to glow & illuminate through the layers beneath. The work is created focusing on light & fluidity to give a nod to the overall sensation of the moment.
