About My Work …

Consider an alternative way of looking at the world. Not what you see, but why you see it. The why determines what and how I paint.

Some of us see forests and others see trees, or upsides and downsides, or mistakes and opportunities. Our life circumstances have a huge influence on why we see certain things. For me, I learned to see simplicity, tenderness, intelligence, and quiet. They are the essential elements that define a person or a place. That is why many of my paintings tend to be very simple. I paint only what is necessary.

I like to simplify objects and compositions, exaggerate or collapse space, paint flat, and integrate items across time and contexts. My goal is to reinterpret settled beliefs about the world; to show things in ways that we may not normally see or think about them. Ideas for my paintings come from my travels, lived experiences, and studies of themes and motifs from art history, ancient cultures, psychology, and the natural world.

It’s what I do when I travel or am on the go. Watercolors are easily transportable and enable me to quickly capture what I see.
