Artist's Statement

A quote from Grant Wood describes a condition from which he and many of us suffer: taking too much for granted. Wood said, "...To my great joy, I discovered that in the very commonplace, in my native surroundings, were decorative adventures and that my only difficulty had been in taking them too much for granted." Woods' words ring with truth. My goal as an artist is to capture the wonder of the often overlooked ordinary, the commonplace beauty around us, those little details that make all the difference in our daily lives. The rough hue of rocks, lush blue woodlands, weathered wood grains, and distant meandering dirt roads never cease to appeal to me. I attempt to share the beauty from which routine blinds us. My work can be purchased on ebay or by contacting me personally.

Study in Yellow 16x20 SOLD

Study in Yellow is one of  the few personal paintings displayed in my home. Preferring to display the work of acquaintances or pieces found while traveling, I have very little of my own work hung on my walls. However, the starkness of this pieces has always appealed to me. I must have a penchant for tiles, having included the design in several paintings. In addition, the color yellow attracts me, so Study in Yellow has found a home with its creator.
