Artist Statement

 

As a realist I am interested in light and the diaphanous quality of materials for my paintings. Using a glazing technique which requires many layers of thin paint to build the painting, I can create subtle changes in the opacity of the paint film resulting in the illusion of light.

Organic forms and translucency have been my muse for still life and I have recently added landscapes.

I am an established artist living and working in North Kingstown, RI, studied with a variety of schools and studios and received my Bachelor of Fine Arts from Pratt Institute.
