As an artist I try to create paintings that are relaxing and can live easily in a home. I want viewers to feel my work is comfortable with just a touch of mystery.
I am continually surprised at the ways that a subject can feel completely at peace and balance a composition. Sometimes I find this in surprising ways and places like an awkwardly cropped photo, the gesture of a hand or the blurring of light on a figure.
I continue to be fascinated with these classic subjects and I hope viewers find them as satisfying as they were to create.
