Artist Statement:  “Color has always intrigued me.  I celebrate color. It is the fuel that drives me.   I strive for atmospheric harmony in my landscapes by infusing loose, bold brush strokes with vivid broken color.  Simplicity gives a sense of balance against the density of the colors.  A snapshot is all I offer. As a native North Westerner, I am infatuated with the beauty of the Northwest landscapes, especially the Palouse wheat fields.  The intense colors of the Palouse are extreme and captivating. Capturing the every day lives of ordinary people inspire my figure paintings.  Varied brush strokes suggest movement and texture, while spontaneous impressions capture a gesture, and emotion or feeling.  I am a faithful Impressionist.  I want my viewers to delight in an expressive and spontaneous encounter of color and light.”
