Artist's Statement:
As a still life painter, the theme of impermanence is central to my life and my art. Perhaps because both of my parents died when I was a teenager, I found solace in embracing that all of life is constantly changing. In my art I am most often drawn to express the beauty that exists in the midst of life's impermanence by painting still life subjects that are short-lived. Whether a flower, a piece of fruit, or foliage, these offerings of nature spend only a short time in their fully alive form. Lately I have been exploring the way light and shadow can drastically change the appearance of shapes and forms in architecture. Through studying and painting all of these impermanent images, I am constantly reminded that life is brief and the time to appreciate my own life is right now
