Words from the Artist
My desire is to elevate the activities of daily life, those commonplace scenes where the moment becomes the subject. Whenever I venture out into the Portland area, I take random pictures using my iPhone and make selections from this data. What I’m searching for in a particular scene is a feeling, some sense of place, or maybe it’s just happening upon the way sunlight defines forms and creates shadows. My paintings are not recordings, but more interpretive naturalism, where any representation is referenced as my impression in distinct brushwork.
