Mostly wooded and often dark, the places my figures inhabit are conjured from memory and imagination. Reflecting on the fairy tales of my childhood and mixing them with a dose of my current life in a semi-wooded area of Connecticut, I’ve re-imagined characters, situations, and places from a grown-up perspective.
Color, light, form and structure are essential components providing limitless challenges as well as a framework upon which I suspend images, both observed and remembered.
Several themes hold my interest: the atmospheric landscape / the figure as an abstraction of form and color / the narrative that occurs when the painted figure enters the painted place.
I continually explore new media and new ways of revealing the poetry and mystery in the familiar, visible world.
