“My paintings are inspired by the diverse colors of light in the beautiful coastal landscape where I live. I frequently paint plein air, using all my senses to share my vision. Paintings capture that feeling of peace and joy that nature gives. I look for what is unique, to convey a sense of place. Although often evoked by a fleeting moment, I translate in paint to transcend time. Brushstrokes over glimpses of color intentionally reveal some of the painting process and layering enables me to create luminous color. Although I love oil paints on canvas, I am always experimenting.”
