Artist's Statement

I have been an ardent francophile for more than 40 years and live part time in SW France where I paint en plein air. In my Philadelphia studio I create larger paintings from my experience of working directly in the landscape and strive to capture the spirit of place, essence and mood. I paint in oil on either panel or linen while preferring colors that are rich and luminous with expressive brushstrokes. The vibrational dance of light, color and form, feed my visual appetite as does my choice of tranquil and mysterious subjects. As well as landscape work I paint from still life and enjoy exploring the spontaneous process of making monotypes using pastels over the printed image.
