Artist's Statement
 





 

My work is a continual attempt to understand the personality of a single brushstroke when it has life and movement, when it compromises and blends, where it is so purposefully placed that it rings true.

My Work is a continual attempt to understand the personality of a single brushstroke, when it has life and movement, when it compromises and blends, where it is so direct and purposefully placed that it rings true.

I am inspired by nature and my surroundings, ever changing skies, seascapes, landscapes and the abstract that I can see in it. I am influenced by the work of Winslow Homer, Turner, Monet and Van Gogh. Each for the fresh life their work still holds, their personality and emotion that shows through the loose brushstrokes.

I strive to achieve a certain freshness and energy in my work, allowing some soft unfinished edges where one can follow and let the imagination wander. This visual communication invites the viewer to complete the narrative, by bringing his or her own experiences to it.

My new work is the passage from the inspiration, through the struggle, and finally the resolution. I allow each painting the freedom to change in this process, it is in the give and take and acceptance with the medium. A design balance for me with each stroke affecting the next.

I feel I have achieved my aim when the viewer can find a connection.
