Artist Statement

Since my childhood in Paris, I have traveled throughout my life and painted scenes from these travels.  The scenes that intrigue me are not the standard views, but ones unique to each location that I believe will appeal to others as they do to me.  I allow the aesthetics, geography and culture of each place to dictate how I compose and paint the scene.  Each place inspires me differently and generates a distinctive response.

I am drawn to landscapes where the play of light and shadow in their colors capture the specific moment.  I aspire to use a delicate touch to set a calm and pleasing mood.

My tones depend on the scene, often muted, other times much more vibrant. I am excited by the challenge of recreating a scene naturalistically, so that the painting achieves the same beauty and interest that inspired me to paint it.
