“I am inspired by landscapes and seascapes set in the unique light of Cape Cod, amazed by the color and dance of flowers, awestruck by the architecture and movement of the human form, haunted by the silence of old houses and empty spaces, and intrigued by the beauty in everyday objects. My desire is to create work with curiosity and honesty so my audience finds something surprising and engaging in what they see.”
