"I strive to make an emotional connection to the subject before me and express that as directly and honestly as I can"
"I like to keep my paintings loose and free allowing the rhythm of the brushstrokes to create expression and mood, usually light and atmosphere are more important to me than a complete description of the subject"
"I don't work with formulas but try to take each subject fresh as if it is the first time I have painted it"
“The most important thing for me is to connect to something in the subject that touches my emotions. That becomes the driving force of each painting. The light and atmosphere of a dramatic landscape or a busy street, or the character and sentiment in a portrait. A painting can reveal so much, I never cease to be amazed and I can't imagine that I could ever lose the desire to keep searching for more and to go deeper.”
