Growing up in the city of Philadelphia, drawing chalk animals in the street, especially horses, I am drawn to gesture and movement in all living things. You can recognize a person or an animal just from the tilt of their head or shift of their weight. All living beings have this identifiable quality. I love capturing this quality in my paintings.
I want to paint the uniqueness of any subject, figures, animals or still life. When I look at someone or something there is a certain moment that captures my imagination and inspires me to capture that in paint. There is something about shape and color that I love. Mixing up paint and pushing it around on a surface is sooo satisfying.
I am a lifelong student studying this art passion that possesses me. There is so much to see and discover and share. Painting at the easel is such a joy and time goes by quickly.
