Artist Statement I'm influenced by the beautiful landscapes around me which feature bluestone outcroppings covered with thick Birch, Maple, and Evergreen forests. Wildlife is abundant, and so is the inspiration to paint and create the breathtaking vistas all around me. I've been painting exclusively on black canvas for the last 15 years, and I often leave the black canvas showing through the paint to outline the different elements of the composition. The exposed black canvas also serves to frame the composition. My style is primarily abstract, but I enjoy incorporating enough realism to my work so that the viewer can identify with the image. I also like to focus on lighting and contrast, and you'll often see shadows and light filtering through my work. I like to push the boundaries of color, painting with sable brushes and even airbrushes to achieve the color range I'm after. I'll often put a painting on a display shelf and view it in different lighting throughout the day, then continue adding color until I'm satisfied. After the dust settles and the painting is signed and complete, I often will look over my shoulder and see that one of my beautiful children has been copying me, creating a little masterpiece of their own, which always brings a smile to my face. :) Artists often agonize over every brushstroke, while children express themselves freely in any medium and any surface .. I hope I never lose that childlike passionate joy of creating. :)
