I am attracted to the way sunlight illuminates doorways and creates shadows on walls. Architecture is created by people, while environment and light are natural. The way the two combine is what inspires me. With my paintings I try to convey the feeling I get when I happen upon a scene of beauty, color and form that seems to be going unnoticed by everyone else. I think of a building facade as a stage on which to place story elements. In my paintings I often combine parts of different images and elements, real and imagined, hoping to encourage viewers to create their own story. I hope my paintings of moments captured in time, my unveiling of obscure visual treasures, will inspire everyone to pause and look closer at their own everyday surroundings.
