Among the Trees
20" x 15"
Artist Statement: Most of my recent work has been in oil paint on either canvas or wood. My other favorite mediums include collage, oil stick, pastel and pencil, which I will often combine to coax a visual journey. The changing character of the Shawangunk Mountains, which surround my home, also influence some of the textural and color choices in my work.
In my abstract work, I try to build images that tease at the familiar in everyday life, yet nod towards the mysterious and the unknown. I want to evoke a sense of place, a mood, or an object, such as a house, that connects with viewers and triggers them to explore their own experiences and sensibilities. This is where I live when I am painting and hope my audiences will enjoy their moment with my work.
