ARTIST STATEMENT: Color excites me. Nature calms me. The city makes be vibrate.
I make art because it makes me feel better. Itís therapy. I donít make art for anyone but me.
Art connects me with what Iím painting, whether on site or in studio. I see things I never did before: How the light dances across water. The soft transition of the sky at dusk. The glow around edges of things. The incredible blue of an evening sky. I continually try and push myself to capture my vision, and the feeling of a moment.
Pastel gives me the intensity of color I seek and the most immediacy a medium can provide.
