Through my paintings, I have become attentive to the splendid drama of my everyday world; how light hangs on a tree or building, the movement or stillness of water passing under a bridge, the mystery of a tunnel or the grit of a train yard. Motion manifests itself in much of my subject matter, whether it’s arresting a moment of motion or even a feeling in time. I feel my body of work so far is a metaphor for my life’s journey.
