My work is greatly inspired by the landscape, as well as the barns, structures, roads and farm scenes that surround my home in the Cooperstown, New York area. I often paint the same scenes over and over, deriving great comfort from portraying what is familiar as well as noting the small changes that occur over time in my environment. Yet within that framework of the familiar, the start of each painting brings me the exciting challenge of finding new ways to express what I see and feel.
I strive for simplicity in my work; in color, form, composition, and subject matter. However, complexities inevitably find their way in via texture, handwritten elements and small bits of painted details.Current and Upcoming Events
