I paint what inspires me. With my paintings I seek to transport the viewer to another place and time; to transform the observer into participant. As a ‘scape artist, I am captivated by Nature’s drama: the sky before the deluge; the sea in the midst of a storm; a dynamic interplay of light and color. I paint with oil to build depth, using glazing techniques to create luminescence and compelling the viewer to return. My paintings are composed from photographs and completed in studio where they become the narrative for that moment when my inspiration becomes tangible.
