“From time to time I experience strange, intense, short-lived visions of beauty, an unfamiliar, elusive, barely perceptible beauty that surfaces in certain words or landscapes, certain colorations of the world, certain moments…”

Guy Maupassant

These words express my goal as a painter. My paintings attempt to capture an intense moment that rings absolutely true. A scene, a certain light, colors arranged that pierce through ones center to extract an emotion. A search for beauty in the familiar, unseen until revealed by the work. The mundane elevated to art.
