Artist Statement:

I picked up a paintbrush for the first time in January 2021, I soon discovered a feverish passion for translating my world into paint. I have always been absurdly delighted by color, carefully studying  differences in hues and shades, how they relate to one another, viscerally reacting to combinations that  appeal or repel. When I paint, I am fully immersed in hue, shadow, and light. My practice is to paint  daily, and to absorb lessons from each piece. I work in acrylic, on paper, wood, and canvas.  

Painting, for me, is a quiet thrill ride. I am drawn to simple subjects–fruit on my kitchen table, an open  field in my home state of Maine, a barn in Vermont. My work is a striving for space, joy, and simplicity in  our noisy and chaotic world. My work draws cues from classicism, realism, and impressionism. I am  inspired by the luminous light of Sargent, the vivacious color of Kahlo, the clean hues of Hopper, and the  brilliant exactitude of contemporary classicist Jacob Collins.
