“I search for something that can sing, resonate, that touches me deeply.
As I paint, I am guided by an organic impression of something coming alive, however fragile and elusive.”
“To me this is being in the service of an image, a powerful impression.
Trying to acknowledge and respond to the mystery of its appeal as faithfully and honestly as I can.”
“I take snapshots on the go with a smartphone camera.
A convenient, always available way to practice composition and light.
Sometimes there is good material for future paintings.”
“My work is uniquely mine and you will experience it in a way that is uniquely yours.
But something, sometimes, can be shared in this experience. When it happens, it is most precious.”
