Plein Air Impressionist Painter
My studio is the great outdoors. From coastal mountain top to the backside of the Channel Islands, I work directly from life, en plein air, observing natures nuances moment by moment. Time of day and weather set the stage for a scene that continually changes. The challenge lies in choosing a moment to capture, then distilling it to the point where the subject matter becomes secondary and an expression of the emotional experience emerges.
My gear is minimal giving me the freedom to experience nature quietly and deeply. If everything is right, the task is to paint something that will somehow express the profound effect that this process has on me.
