The smaller size of this painting creates an huge sense of personal intimacy for me. There is so much packed in this little work that it is literally jumping off the wall! It is based of the last section of the Sans Souci northern gardens abutting the woods. Here the lush rows of colorful blooms are the oldest in the gardens and very much the grandest. As the morning sun reflected through the trees color bounced around my eye manipulating the visual perspective of this landscape and creating a fantastical scene. I would consider the color in this one to qualify this work as another teachable moment painting. I will be studying the color and light effects further in my next few works.

My story is easy enough to tell…I’ve been creating since childhood driven by a need for order amongst disorder, new harmonies amongst objects, visually seduced by repetition, pattern, and color and onward the dance goes. At some point around the age of 15 or 16 a rather observant art teacher stepped in and put me on the path from wayward youth to wayward artist. From there it’s been an epicurean vacation of creation like a Jacques Cousteau dive special into the deepest reaches of my mind. Sadly, no sharks. The discoveries are constant, the sun is always shining, and the ocean is always beautifully blue. The rest is nature.
My work is held in multiple corporate and private collections throughout the US, Canada, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.
About my work:
I am an explorer at heart possessed with a need to look beyond traditions in style and question the unknown. Because of this the works are seeded in process painting and material discovery. Elements of drawing, textural curiosities and color/form relationships combine to create a unique aesthetic in each work. Depending on what is going on in the world at the time there will also be elements of nature and/or humanity in my work that mix about with abstracted components to create a sort of historic bibliophile in the paint…essentially a moment in time that reflects for a lifetime.
