Live the full life of the mind, exhilarated by new ideas, intoxicated by the romance of the unusual.
— Ernest Hemingway

My paintings are each a memory. 

So often, I visit a place and immediately look around and think, β€œI will paint this moment”.  Whether it is a beach scene, beautiful flowers in a tote bag on the subway, or a simple moment walking in nature, I collect memories and turn them into my paintings.  

My works reflect an attitude of experimentation and a curiosity regarding the beauty created by the transparency and overlapping of ideas.

Inspiration for all of my artwork comes from waterscapes, sunsets, bright colors in nature, and the silhouettes created by extreme light or darkness. I absolutely love working as a painter and am constantly exploring new ideas in my work.
