Artist Statement

I have always been in awe of the power and beauty of nature, and am most drawn to the bright colors and exotic forms found in tropical areas. I am fascinated by the idea that something in our world can look fantastical, but it really exists.

In life I find the seemingly unconnected is often connected in unexpected ways. My paintings reflect these surprising contradictions: the subjects are still yet full of movement, fantastical yet real, softly balanced yet exuberantly colorful. I see my subjects on the canvas as dancers. Good dancers move around the dance floor with grace and never collide. They are at once connected and individual.

Nature also has a contradiction of beauty and danger that attracts me. Some of the most brightly colored plants and animals are poisonous. These plants and animals tell me that sometimes you have to take risks to achieve beauty. Painting itself is risky to me; every new piece is a new, challenging adventure. Doing this kind of painting makes me happy, both the process and the final result. I hope you enjoy the work and find something in it that satisfies you.
