The versatility of working in both pastel and oil allows me to express myself in singular ways enriching my work, and adding to my growth as an artist. Plein air painting has become a passion; except on the days when the weather is really bad. On those days I can be found painting from a still life in the studio, or creating a larger painting from a plein air study.

Oil allows me to quickly capture the fleeting light and spirit of the subject outdoors. I find the textural quality of oil exciting and I like to build up an “impasto” in the lighter areas. I especially enjoy the unexpected effects that can be achieved with a palette knife.

Most of my pastels begin with a transparent water-media under-painting, in a complementary color that sparkles through and contrasts with the opaque strokes of pastel. I apply pastel with broad strokes as if I were using a brush. The pure colors and refractive qualities shimmer on the surface of the sanded paper I use. By layering, blending, and placing colors side by side, the pastel painting shimmers with iridescent luminous color.

I strive to capture a mood or a moment in time by describing only the essence of a subject leaving out unnecessary details, inviting the viewer to interpret the art through their own experience.
