"In Landscapes of Light through Color I look towards capturing those transcendent musical elements of light within nature, to express its reflective beauty and underlying mystical reality through color and form."
“My method is lyrical and poetic, where all contact is direct with each piece and dedicated to revealing working in the moment of creating. The work embodies a representational foundational method with an integration of the impressionist and expressionist schools. My color selection is based upon a plein air experience of working in an intensity and movement of the light of France’s Provence Cote d’Azur, and in Italy’s Lazio, Tuscany and Umbria, and New England’s coastal regions.”
