B.F.A., Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts
I am inspired by my surroundings and from memories. Wooded lots, expansive farmlands, and city scenes all generate the same response in me; finding the balance. I love the way shapes and forms relate to one another and how colors interact. I use color and the handling of the medium to try and capture the essence of what is before me. These aspects are an expression of me in my art, even more than the subject. I want my art to impart a sense of awareness, have a sense of place, a feeling of atmosphere. I am interested in aspects of unity, of how everything comes together to create a grounded feeling.
