Statement

Artist statement

My work deals first with traditional compositional frameworks. It is my intent to produce an aesthetically pleasing structure of color, shape and space that evokes the composition of paintings from the Old Masters. From there, I select subject matter that deals with irony or seemingly humorous juxtaposition of objects, but I aim for subtlety. I consider a painting to be successful if the spectator is confused about its meaning, or feels the need to ask questions about the painting. Although the painting’s title gives a clue to my intentions, I prefer the viewer to come up with their own meaning based on their personal experiences.

I also do traditional realism specializing in seascapes—a girl’s gotta eat!
