Artist’s Statement

​

“This series was created while listening to a friend’s music and was a response to his newest album.  The style was inspired by my desire to experiment with abstraction and relates to a series of paintings that started with the view from the window of an airplane.  I work with color, bound by shape, and punctuated with dots and dashes to create an energy that flows from the canvas and embraces the vitality of nature.”

“I am an optimist who sees potential all around.  I hope that my work brings a moment of reflection about the possibilities of people, painting and the planet.   Having grown up in an old Vermont farmhouse on a dead end road, I have always found comfort in banging around outdoors; forts and fairy houses were part of our backwoods.   With working artists all around town, making art was always a reasonable goal.   Now, I teach art to a lot of teenagers (who inspire me daily) and when I can,  I also make art.   Most of my pieces deal with the intersection of nature and people. ”
