Acrylic on Canvas
24 x 12 x 1.5"
A fall trip to a farm house in Madison County brought crisp air and mountain views. The stream across the street was a picture of serenity with the newly fallen leaves and movement that seemed to never end.
I use both watercolor and acrylic in my work. Working in different mediums allows me a full range of style, expression, and connection. My work straddles the line of realism with a dash of whimsy and heart. My work is inspired by familial stories as well as artists like Edgar Degas, Andrew Wyeth, Emily Carr. There is beauty in the quiet, reflective moments of life.
My paintings are about special places and faces that are ingrained in one’s memory, and how that can change over time. How the mundane becomes the monumental memory. It is about moving the viewer through an experience characterized by joy, nostalgia, and connection. My works’ goal is to connect us with nature, our past in both a small and grand scale, and the folks we love.
