Artist’s Statement

I enjoy painting and experimenting with color. My preferred subjects are related to nature and the outdoors, where the light and the colors change often with the seasons and the time of the day. Those changes, subtle or abrupt, are always a challenge to the artist. To me, painting is a search and a discipline. Painting has taught me to see things in a different way, observing every detail more carefully and more consciously, distinguishing colors and shapes, and ultimately appreciating more deeply what I see.
