As a painter I have been greatly influenced by the landscape of Maine and Northwest Connecticut. My artwork is an exploration of the relationship between abstraction and reality, as well as feelings and impressions. I work with layered color to create an ephemeral sense of atmosphere and form. I am very interested in abstracting and reworking forms in such a way that will capture the mystery and emotional quality of these landscapes. Upon completion of the painting, I want the viewer to be left with a sense of place and memory unique to his or her own experience.
