As a beginning, I have chosen to explore the theme of serene motion on land and water in several of the series I have produced thus far. The technique of creating motion with brush strokes in a calm nature scene represents much of the childhood nostalgia that simultaneously fascinates me– such as time, nature, recreation, and light. Painting also provides a source of identification for me, as it displays the same nuances as many of my own childhood activities. My images indicate a precision of detail and an attention to form are as important as the easy grace and melodious balance of the overall composition.
