I see the world with the volume turned up.
My art is a visual diary of the places and people I observe, inspired by travels near and far. From the spectacular natural beauty surrounding my home in the central Pennsylvania mountains to the distinctive lights and personalities of cities, there’s nothing that I love more than using vibrant color to capture these venues and make them my own.
I do much of my work in my studio, although I also paint outdoors in the beautiful central Pennsylvania landscape to sharpen my observation skills. I’m attracted to landscapes with dramatic angles, impressive skies, and natural bodies of water. In my cityscapes, I like to bring beauty and emphasis to aspects of urban environments that many of us would normally look past as we rush through our daily routines. These paintings capture a range of subjects, from dynamic, down-the-street views to intimate portraits of anonymous individuals.
