My art is about our connection to places.  Each place has its own meaning and story.  I try to let the place speak for itself and focus on capturing the life in the perspective lines, the mood of atmospheric depth, the linearity and rhythm of shadows, and the seemingly abstract shapes of people who inhabit the scene.  In each piece I aim to capture something true and memorable.      

My Story

We all want symbols to remember what matters.        

Feet in 3 inches of water, at the edge of the lake, each year I deliberated about what rock should come home to serve as a reminder of the summer. I kept them in a box by my nightstand.      

Years passed, I became an architect, In the process, I fell in love with the logic of perspective, a sense of scale and depth, populating the scene with scale figures, and the simple joy of creating something that didn’t exist before.    

You may or may not know this about the world of architecture but we don’t draw anymore (somewhat true); so my love of perspective and painting found a new home on a trip to New Mexico.      

On a whim I sketched and painted our trip.  Each garden, plaza, landscape, restaurant we went to I took a 5 minute sketch. I noticed things I’d never seen before: the number of radial petals on the stained glass of the cathedral…the layers of horizon at dusk…the ornamentation of the clawfeet of the chairs at the café…the clusters of people sketched as one.  When I returned home, my notebook of sketches and paintings became a treasure.  It reminded me of the rocks I would collect as a kid. A piece of a place I loved to remind me why I went there.      

I never looked back, from there I began painting the places I’ve loved and the places I wanted to be. I soon found that others connected with my art because it captured the places that were meaningful to them through a new lens of light, space, and perspective.

More simply put: painting is just something that brings me joy…here is where I share it.

Watercolor is my primary medium, but we have an open relationship.  There are three things that I love about it.  One, negative space it forces you to account for the foreground as you sketch the background.  This creates a very connected painting.  Painting the light as negative space, can bring an incredible luminosity.  Two, when I get it right the reaction of the water and the paper and the texture will paint itself.  Meaning the texture of a brushstroke will create a detail that I could never, or the way a dark zone will bleed up into a lighter creates a shadow gradient that I could not intentionally force. And three, I paint, multiple layers from top to bottom in value shades. That means that unrelated items may share the same shape.  This makes for unexpected connections between elements that bring interest to connectivity to the work. So that’s why I like watercolor, but who knows, maybe some oil & acrylic in the works.
