At first glance my work may seem like pretty pictures of fruit and flowers, but for me there is a deeper meaning. I paint from live still life setups. Setups that are in a constant state of change. In rendering each painting there is an urgency to get it painted and printed quickly. I am acutely aware of the life force drifting away from my freshly picked lilacs. I cringe a bit when I see brown spots starting to form on a pear.
My "not so still life" paintings deal with the brevity of life. Each painting is a celebration of life and a call to the viewer to breathe in every precious moment.
