"I am interested in the magical beauty seen in everyday life. In my paintings and drawings I like to alternate working from observation with working in a more intuitive manner. The imagery is inspired by real-life observations and experiences. My recent work centers around the landscape near my home in Central Kentucky. The changing light, color, water and vegetation offer seemingly endless opportunities for me to explore aspects of color, light and surface relationships that I find both challenging and beautiful."
