About the Artist

In my paintings, I explore landscapes and surreal compositions to provoke thought and meditation. My artwork consistently exposes my obsession for late afternoon light and the subtlety of both cool and warm ambient spaces.
Addicted to these nuances, I exaggerate the mood of each painting to isolate the essence of a moment in time. I believe the nature of these observations can immediately create an intimate connection so that the viewer is left only to absorb the energy and take it with them.  I am fascinated by the idea that the viewer can be forced to acknowledge this relationship with a painting. In my surreal works, I attempt to capture this by arranging non-relative objects to create new relationships. Or demonstrate the extensive, labored journey of an object only for it to travel the shortest of distances. Dreams play a large part of where my ideas originate. I always sketch an image after remembering a dream, not usually for the content, but largely for what it felt like. Documenting this awareness in my painting allows me to shelve such moments as if I experienced them awake to take with me, through my journey. Lives and works in Dagsboro, DE.
