ARTIST STATEMENT

Texture and Hue

I have always had great appreciation for my natural surroundings. However, when I paint it is more about paint itself. A blank canvas is exciting to me. It is full of possibilities. The landscape is rich and organic. I can only hope my paintings are as rich as the pungent smell of a pine or as vibrant as the shallow turquoise water along the Atlantic coast. I am also influenced by an appreciation of art history. I love paint. I love colour. I love texture. All of this is thrown on the canvas at once. Sometimes more structured, sometimes less.
