Artist Statement

Like many, I am drawn to nature.  I have lived in Southern New Jersey all my life.  I feel as though the sounds and sights of the shoreline, marshes and pine lands are magical, so I treat them as such.  When working I think to myself…what is the story, what is important and how do I get there.  My approach to representing what I see is simple yet complex at the same time.
