Statement

As a child, I was given the gift of art from my late mother. Following in her footsteps, I chose the paintbrush as my primary tool. She encouraged me to look deeply into the world around me and put to canvas whatever I saw. I tended to see a world infused with color, light, motion and a bit of mysticism. 

Growing up on Long Island surrounded by water, I could not help but be moved by nature and all of its gifts. The mystery of the ever changing landscape intrigues and inspires me. I have realized that both consciously and unconsciously, I am always recording color and form. When I look out, I see lines and shapes dancing to the rhythm of color. 

Be it by the human figure or color fields in the landscape, I am constantly inspired by what I see and feel. When I paint, I rely on instinct and an inner voice. At times I find myself working as if in a dream state, neither awake nor asleep, and not quite sure how I have arrived at “The End” when I do.  

While translating my vision with color and line, my hope is to inspire and evoke a range of emotions. I am telling my story but it is the beholders story too. They have the option to expand upon it, fill in the blanks and make it their own.

Through personal experience and observation, I have come to believe that art can heal. It can nourish, give strength and provide you with a voice when you need it most. No matter where the journey of life brings you, together with art, it is possible to conquer all.
