Artist’s Statement:
“Much of my work involves memory and contemplation. I spend a great deal of time seeking these ideals in my art, music, writing, and outdoor explorations. They are all interrelated – if I’m walking, I’m thinking about painting or music, while my creative endeavors are frequently about seeking the calm of Nature. In my mind, they’re one and the same. I grew up in Connecticut and Vermont, surrounded by farms, pastures, and wooded landscapes, and this is reflected in my paintings. Everything seems to refer back to that idea, along with my 20-years of work in the professional-gardening sphere of Philadelphia. My ongoing work is about digging deeper
into my memories and recapturing my rural reveries. Among the varied artists that appeal to me include Andrew Wyeth, Martin Johnson Heade, Raphaelle Peale, William Trost Richards, Jasper Johns, Asher B. Durand, N.C. Wyeth, and George Stubbs.”
