artist-statementArtist Statement:

Art is the most important thing in my life.  I love the feel of the brush to canvas, pencil to paper, the smell of the paints and linseed oil.  I use all mediums, including crayons, markers, watercolors, pens, pastels and collages.

All of my landscapes are done in “open air”.  I don’t think you can paint a cold winter scene or hot summer day without being in it.  I like the smell of the snow, grass or rain and I paint it.  My art is about the feeling of the moment and not done from pictures, in this way I am part of all of my paintings.

I love to create something from nothing, to take a blank canvas or a piece of paper and bring the feeling of the moment to others.  In the end, the artwork speaks for itself.
