I enjoy finding something lovely in everyday objects, events and people. I am fascinated with color the way it plays on a surface, hits forms and casts shadows. My intent is to capture the intrinsic nature or indispensable quality of a moment in my paintings and drawings. I do so by focusing on color, value and light. I use classic materials such as charcoal, chalk, pastel, shellacked paper, and wood panels used for centuries in art making. Evoking the beauty of everyday moments is my aspiration.
