Artist Statement I create captivating images through rich brushwork and impasto. I paint townscapes and cityscapes primarily on the strength of photographs taken while on bicycle trips to various locales. Cities and towns are presented in many scenes, expressing a vivid poetic presentation. Plastered walls, iron gates, street lamps, rustic lanes, rows of buildings, chimney pots, church spires and grand dark windows are found in my work.

I express a feeling for the beauty hidden in the ordinary and create a delicate poetry within the most insignificant scene - a poetry that can not be spoken. While working at a canvas or panel, I feel like a poet who has expressed an emotional balance, a harmony that is seldom achieved. In our hurried existence we may be distracted by many objects that vie for our attention; the poet-painter, selecting a subject, directs us out of chaos to the supreme state of mind.
