I am an American Impressionist, and I try to bring emotion to every painting I create. I paint mostly in oils although I love pastels as well. When I paint and create I feel as though I am molding something beautiful. To me, it is not just simply a matter of value or color or even creation, but rather, an opportunity to capture the spirit and essence of the subject and connect with the viewer in many ways. I must connect at some level with everything I paint, which probably explains why I have not covered miles of canvas in my career. I can't just stand before a canvas and paint anything. If I don't feel it, I can't paint it with the expression that every painting deserves. I hope that all the collectors and viewers of my artwork will connect with it on some personal level. I want my work to bring joy to the collector and beauty to their home.
