ARTIST STATEMENT

 

For me, painting is a pilgrimage – a journey into the mystery of creation and a journey into my soul as well as a bridge into yours.

Whether I am painting in the Hudson Valley, near Italian castles or French chateaus, on a sun-drenched beach in Florida or Maui, my paintings capture the underlying brilliance – the spiritual energy – of nature  when painting “en plein air”.  I am absorbed into nature’s grand silence with all of my senses acting as ready receptors.

With intuition leading the way, I allow for a total immersion, and the world of form and color merges and shifts, separates and impresses, the whole dissolving into an insistent mood of pure energy. The magic is there and the painting is complete.
