My Goal as a Painter

To me the individual brush stroke has integrity and is an element in itself. I paint alla prima (wet on wet) with very little reworking. That is not to say I work quickly. Each brush stroke is considered. 

Vision that exists only perhaps in my subconscious, my goal is not to reproduce a scene in detail, as a photograph, rather to capture the convergence of a moment in time, to communicate an essence, to bring the viewer’s own memory and imagination in to play. In this way, in each of my paintings, if I have done my job, there is much more than meets the eye.
