A born optimist, my oil paintings are
innately colorful. Subtly influenced by the
Fauves, I use expressive brushstrokes to
liberally interpret landscapes and
architecture. Vivid uses of colors,
thoughtfully applied, breathe beauty and
happiness, giving new excitement to the
often overlooked sights around me.”
I aspire to achieve a “glance” at our
world, a “snippet” of our environment,
fresh and unlabored. I portray the scene
that is fleeting, yet memorable. While
painting on South Main Street recently I
had a viewer ask “Is that Charleston?” to
which I replied “No, this is Salisbury.
Observe the scene in front of me”. He was
seeing, for the first time, his own city
through the eyes of an artist.
I thrive on that.
