Artist’s Statement

“These are the day to day things I see, and live with.  They are exceptional, because there is something about what I see that I go back to again and again.  They are mundane, as they can be easily passed over during a day or a lifetime as the all too familiar.  The subject matter becomes more curious to me, in that it is personal and simple, while being easily accessible to a broad audience. 

My work is made on site, and small, because I keep a fluid, readily transportable working practice.  It involves a balance of time that is incredibly planned, and very much spontaneous.  For example, I only have a certain time of year if I want to paint tree branches before the leaves develop.  When I want to paint a morning shadow instead of an evening one, I need to study the shadows, and plan accordingly. I am the same person, but everyday is new.  I have to be familiar with what each season brings, as textures, daylight, and time passes.  This is all very straightforward, and this is part of my work.”
