"I paint landscape and figurative works. I attempt to capture the character, energy and atmosphere of subjects without burdening the viewer with myopic detail, painterly effort, flattery or excessive drama. My goal is to make paintings that feel good to look at; paintings that record a place or subject and then offer the viewer an opportunity to meditate with it. My goal is not to challenge viewers, but to offer them a place to rest and contemplate."
