My paintings focus on representational interpretations of light. I work in watercolor and my aim is to paint transparently, to achieve the effects of sunlight on the forms which I use as subjects.
I work almost exclusively outdoors and on site. My goal is to paint light and the fleeting quietude of the landscape.
