Artist Statement

I am a classically trained painter with a strong interest in capturing nature in all its forms. With it being increasingly disregarded, I am all the more determined to uphold its beauty in my art.

Whenever possible I work directly from life because visual truth is only possible when seeing directly. Being immersed in the atmosphere of the subject is the most effective way to capture its essence and mood. Light is the most important factor in this, without experiencing it first hand we miss the essential subtleties that make a thing beautiful. Light is the vehicle by which all visual beauty is shown to us. 

My work - especially en plein air - is done with urgency to capture fleeting lighting effects and to pass these moments on to others is my primary aim as an artist.
