Artists Statement

Nature gives us an infinite variety of moods and contrasts, changing with the seasons, the weather and time of day from dawn to dusk. I strive to capture the contrasts in light and dark, cool and warm, in an impressionistic style, and to create pictures that people can recognize as places they may have visited or seen but presented in a more poetic light.
