My Nature
2010-02-28
I learned much about art from an early age through my father, who was an artist and educator. In the 1970s and 80s, my family owned a small gallery and art supply store.
Primarily, I work with acrylics on canvas, inspired by forms in nature. I am intrigued by the fascinating behavior of light and its interaction with color. Each painting represents a chosen moment, frozen in time and placed on canvas. There is no better tranquilizer for the soul than the sounds, smells, textures, tastes and sights of nature. I hope to remind viewers to take time to stop, look and listen; to be stilled for a while; to imagine the warm caress of sunshine upon their faces, the crisp crackle of fallen leaves beneath their feet, the sweet perfume of a gentle rain.
