Artist Statement I have adopted elements of past artistic movements I admire, as do all artists. I allow them to coexist in my paintings--they cohabitate harmoniously in my work, I like to think...

I have always deeply admired the Impressionist movement, and so I utilize some of their ideals...I want my paintings to capture my "impression," my personal take on a scene, subject or situation. I make my paintings as my interpretation, my "twist." Impressionism incorporates the quality of a sketch--the work is luminous, spontaneous, abbreviated, capturing a fleeting moment in time.

Also, I admire the work of Post-Impressionist Modernism in that color and line quality must be expressive and that an artist's power to determine their palette (hues and tonal ranges) are a seminal element of creativity.

I combine a bit of both movement ideals, and I throw in my own "spark" and interpretation, my expression of joy, ambiguity, nostalgia, sadness--whatever touches me about a particular subject I am working on.
