artist's statement...

Why do I paint? Using line, color, design, compostion and technique to create something beautiful, to show my way of perceiving... gives me pure delight. This delight I share with you, the viewer.

I prefer to create my paintings from "life"... out on location. I find that working in direct interaction with my subject makes all the difference between an "alive" painting and a painting that is merely a copy of what the camera "sees".
