Somers, New York, USA
Working in the classical style of traditional oils my paintings are composed in a slightly more contemporary format while realistically rendering translucency, reflection and texture. With ordinary, familiar objects surprising moments of unexpected color and beautiful reflection can be discovered and appreciated. Finding that beauty in the everyday world simply makes life riche
Graphite drawing has always been an important discipline for me and I enjoy combining the subtlety and sensitivity of line with the richness and vibrancy of oil paint. Relishing pure, fresh color and honoring traditional realism, my paintings focus on the interplay of light, texture and form to describe favorite antiques and ordinary objects, with an occasional sprinkling of humor.
I look for subjects in antique shops and farmer’s markets that have an interesting form or capacity for reflection. I might be attracted by the distortion of light through a glass jar or an antique reminiscent of a sensitive moment in time. It’s the challenge of communicating feelings intrinsic to familiar objects that inspires and intrigues me.
