Artist Statement

My paintings invite the viewer to consider the complex relationship between time and timelessness. This is particularly evident in my series work where I aim to capture the infinite changes of time; the passing of the hours and the seasons. It is the sheer visual interaction between the elements, taken in their bare simplicity that interests me. Water, sky, and architecture change their appearance with the shifts in weather and light. My broken brush strokes depict light and color in luminous waves, dissolving form into a shimmering surface of vibrant light. For me, painting captures the very essence of time and its passage.
