"I enjoy painting moments in the changing light of timeless settings — old boats at rest on the Chesapeake Bay, the sunny beach of a Greek island, gondolas bobbing in the shimmering reflections of Venice or Paris in the rain. I often also paint figures captured at a moment of aloneness in quiet contemplation.
Light is the common denominator in my work. It is the stimulus for color, provides the structure for design, creates shapes, defines images and establishes mood."
