ARTIST'S STATEMENT

"If you truly love nature,
you will find beauty everywhere."

Vincent Van Gogh

What inspires me most is nature! It might be a quiet, misty and mysterious morning, an iconic Myopia fox hunt, or a breezy, sun-scorched, summer afternoon with a symphony of buzzing cicadas. Whether I'm in a salt marsh, a hay field, a farm or a forest, I feel a peaceful and solitary connection with nature, and I try to convey that stillness and feeling of isolation from the world onto the canvas, to capture the essence and spirit of a place - to reach even somewhere beyond that space. Dancing light, swirling textures and magnificent colors come alive through my brushes and paints and the final outcome is a kind of alchemy that sometimes surprises even me.

"Anything under the sun is beautiful if you have the vision - it is the seeing of the thing that makes it so."

Charles W. Hawthorne

"To look at a thing is very different from seeing a thing. One does not see anything until one sees its beauty. Then, and then only, does it come into existence."

Oscar Wilde
