Freedom within Form
Still life isn't still at all--there's a lot of movement as the light hits an object and carves its form so your eye can see it. In these paintings, I tried to convey the beauty I see in simple, everyday things--fruit, a glass plate, a bowl--and how the light is always teaching us more about form and color. I find these still lifes bring me more appreciation of the small details that are all around me but invisible until I take the time to really see them.

"Your work moves me in a way that I find delightful and surprising. I never knew a painting of an apple could make me feel so harmonious. Thank you for that."
