The great outdoors and its creatures have always been an important part of my life.
While painting the landscape out in the field, Mother Nature is in charge. However while painting a still life in my studio, I am able to create my own small universe. These metaphorical paintings echo the delicate balance between nature and man. The arrangements are a juxtaposition of nature-made and man-made elements and most often include birds.
Whether in the field or studio, working in oil or in wax, I respond to the effects of color, light and atmosphere on the subject.
In a world full of chaos, I strive to create a respite for the soul.
