Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

"Can I come home for the summer?" is a painting inspired by a yearning for home, a home in the earth and connection to place, a home full of green living things and water and dirt and birdsong.

I made this painting at a time in life when I felt an overwhelming desire to plant roots in the natural world, to live on a piece of land and pass the seasons and watch what I cultivate bloom and grow and die and come back again.

It is a blissful, serene, deep, long sigh of relief in a painting. It is beautiful in any setting, but in particular hanging on the bedroom wall, where it will be the last sight before falling asleep and the first upon awakening, taking the viewer to a softer space in their mind and heart, a simple, serene space with a soft breeze and warm sky.

This painting is mounted in a simple white floater frame. The framed dimensions of the painting are 108 x 88 x 4 cm.

Artist Profile

Hometown: Denver

Based in: Italy

I born in the United States and earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts at the School of Visual Arts in New York City, studying on a full tuition scholarship under renowned artists including Jane Rosen, Don Eddy, Jan Groth and Jack Youngerman.
After graduating, I dedicated my life to travel and exploration, then settling in Italy, the most poetic, artistic place on the planet. For the past 15 years I have split my time between my homes in northern Italy and the high Rockies in Colorado, a land of wild, untamed beauty.
I am versed in all manner of painting and drawing, am a skilled water-colorist, but my true passion lies in large expressionist oil painting. Oil paint is a live, organic medium that changes with the weather, light, season, and time of day, and is the perfect vessel for my artistic expression.
My works have been exhibited in Italy, the United States and Greece, and are part of numerous private collections. In 2021 I was awarded as a finalist at the Biennale di Genova in Italy, and my most recent solo exhibition in October 2021 in Italy was a sold out event. I am currently scheduled for a solo exhibition in April 2022 at the Mills Gallery in Orlando, Florida.
