Artist Statement

All objects and beings are made up of constantly moving energy sources and colors. They can be afterimages of physical movement, colors generated by certain moods or situations, or atmospheres that alter the landscape as they are projected in a specific direction. I aim to capture snapshots of those energies and colors, and by so doing, illustrate that nothing in life is static. Everything is constantly moving, changing, growing, adapting. Each person, animal, plant or object contains inner zones of warmth and coolness, often unnoticed. Through the expressive style of my painting, and the use of watercolor’s unique properties of transparency and atmospheric effect, I hope to bring those areas to the surface in a manner that sparks emotional response and contemplation.
