I think of my work as being like a visual journal- observations and interpretations of people, places and things I experience day to day. Translating that experience into two dimensional imagery is a challenge that I look forward to whether I am in my studio or out painting on site. It's about the exploration of design, light, shadow, color and texture. Subject matter may vary just as daily experiences will change. I enjoy the hard architectural elements of an urban landscape or an interior space, and occasionally I like contrasting that with the softness and vulnerability of the human form.
Whatever the focus of a particular painting, I find that when I really connect with my subject, other people viewing my work can sense that and feel the connection as well. There is a narrative quality to my painting, but it's a partial narrative. I often find that what is most interesting is what is left unsaid. To quote Edward Hopper: "If you could say it in words there would be no reason to paint.".
