About The Artist
I have always been aware of the simple beauty in this world. Like the sunlight across the floor, rippling water, color, the shape of a leaf—the sights that are all around us every day. The ordinary that is exquisitely beautiful: the stillness in the moment, in my breath. My paintings are a direct conversation and exploration of that stillness.
Working with acrylics on canvas, I paint for the sheer joy of colors, to tell a story, to answer a question, to ask a question: a continuous process of growth and learning.
My painting is deeply influenced by two worlds, the deep woods of Maine where I grew up, and the wild mountains and wide-open spaces of the West, where I now live. These natural worlds come together with my inner spiritual self; from there I create my art.
