A Place for Creativity & Creative People In CNY
Hi welcome to my page. I hope you enjoy looking through the collection of paintings and pastels.
My inspiration comes from my surroundings; the changing seasons in Upstate New York, lively city festivals and the lovely old architecture that makes this area unique.
I love working with color. I am not concerned with capturing the true color of an object for that will change with light, darkness or atmosphere, but with using color to convey depth and form and emotion.
It is the emotional engagement of artist and viewer that I strive for.
Inspiration may come from the city streets or the quiet stillness of a North Country lake with the shimmer of light and color dancing upon it.
Other times inspiration comes from the merge of heart and mind in an image only the artist can create and the viewer can interpret. Color is the conduit connecting artist to emotion, and emotion to viewer.

The really cool thing about being an artist is that I can leave my junk all over the house and just call it a "still life".
And guess what????
You can learn how to paint a still life...or how to creatively leave your junk around the house.
