“I paint the beauty of the ordinary. The sort of beauty most people are only dimly aware of, or don’t notice altogether. We tend to develop a certain blindness to everything ordinary.
I choose to work in oil with an acrylic underpainting. The tonal underpainting made in a single hue, is a key element. It sets the overall mood of the painting and gives a sense of unity. I intentionally leave parts of it uncovered, as I like my artwork to have a bit of an unfinished look.
I find my subjects when I approach my everyday places with openness and curiosity. My artwork is an expression of appreciation for the beauty I find. In my creative process, I give my subject the most precious gift I can make, my full attention.
I want my artwork to bring this subtle beauty to a more conscious part of my viewer’s mind. To give them the initiative to go out and look at the world with fresh eyes. Go see the beauty of the ordinary!”
