“i just want to sit in quiet”


“in quiet observance”

The basic foundation of my painting style is color and my artistic motivation is constructed from my observations of things that I see occurring in everyday life. What I hear, how I feel or how I experience the world I live in becomes a narrative via color. In particular, it is my observation of people that turns out to be my most gratifying of muses. When I listen to fragments of their conversations or observe their interactions, my mind’s eye envisions these words and exchanges as movements of color which I then recreate by painting a snapshot of this unique moment as I envisioned it, much like snapping a picture. My intent is to communicate my vision to an observer as a storyline of energy, movement and color in anticipation that it will create a connection with the viewer that offers them a glimpse of how I often see the world and thus invoke conversation, thought and greater appreciation for art and artist.
