Grounded for many years in a style of traditional realism, today my paintings navigate between reality and interpreted vision. My approach is varied- both spontaneous and controlled - where quick brushwork and manipulated light are countered by passages of precise rendering. Watercolor and acrylics are the media by which I convey my enchantment with the beautiful world we inhabit. It is my goal to express my feelings - to interpret, rather than record; to inspire, rather than simply remind. Evoking the essence of the familiar, I seek to transport the viewer to a heightened appreciation of ephemeral moments in time.
