ARTIST 'S STATEMENT
For over 20 years, my work has been concerned with issues of representational painting and drawing. The light and forms in nature have always been a source of inspiration, information and a point of departure in my work. I continue to paint directly from nature, primarily in Maine and South Central Pennsylvania.These paintings are sometimes completed on the spot, while others are started on location and finished in the studio. In contrast, my studio creations evolve over time, exploring formal and expressive concerns, using as their source paintings and drawings from life, memory, photographs and invention.
