"I have always been interested in color. The way light can change the colors we see is particularly intriguing to me. In my paintings, whether I am painting from life or a photograph, I enjoy using my feelings to influence the way I approach color. Painting from life is my favorite because of the urgency that comes from catching a moment or collection of moments in my paintings. "
