Artist Statement


As many artists before me have been drawn to the Hudson Valley, there will be many after me. I became an artist because of the spectacular Hudson Valley. Everywhere you look there is remarkable scenery. When I consider a new painting, I navigate terrain through my camera's eye, photograph every detail, paint outdoors for 3-4 sittings, and finish painting in my studio while referring to my photographs. My landscapes are created on canvas with a passion I never experienced before in life. There is so much to drink in and capture. My choice of medium is often acrylic because of its versatility. It has the density of oils as well as the transparency of watercolors. In recent years I've been captivated by pen & ink, the medium that our beloved historic artists used. Black and white photography speaks for itself. It's simple, crisp and clear. I favor this form when one or more of these conditions exist: inclement weather, infrastructural settings, exceptional and odd sites, and people's countenances. Pastels are rich in hue and I become filled with pleasure as each layer is applied. In all my work, continuity, shapes and forms, composition and color, are essential to my creative process. Often people approach me claiming that they wish they could paint or draw, but they feel that they have no talent. I encourage all people to create art through any medium whether it be writing poetry, music, or painting. There is an inherent talent in all of us.
