Artist Statement

“Why do you use so much notebook paper?”

1-Cap+with+Painting.jpg

That’s the question my mother put to me when I was in elementary school in the little East Texas town I grew up in. I was always drawing, even in class. Battleships for the boys. Horses for the girls.

I was hooked.

Someone once told me that art is the great journey. With no roadmaps. No directions. Sometimes no known desti- nation. And the only guidance you may be blessed with is intuition. Intuition fueled by imagination.

It’s light that sparks my imagination. Light fascinates me. In my landscapes I tend to focus on the graphic quality of the scene and emphasize the light. I manipulate it to express a mood, a time of day, even a season of the year. As for my cloudscapes, they give me the opportunity to approach the abstract.

Although my work is derived from nature and representational, I leave it open to interpretation. My goal is to make something that resonates visually and emotionally, both for me and the viewer.
