Artist’s Statement

When I first flew in an airplane, I was struck by the color, shapes and shadows created by the light from the sun. The sun influenced everything, infusing the already rich palette of the landscapes and seascapes with what felt like a supernatural light. As the plane moved, the images seemed to move as well. The shapes bounced and swayed in their own rhythmic way.

This was all very exciting to me and the experience has informed my artwork ever since. Light, color and movement are basic elements of all of my paintings.

My work has also been strongly influenced by the coastline of Massachusetts. I grew up there and have always felt tremendous happiness and excitement at the beach. Pleasure is a large part of my process and a critical part of the finished piece. My paintings are places of happiness.
