Brilliant light, deep shadows, rich color, clean lines, and repetitive forms are the elements that best define my work. Early, simple studies of window reflections have evolved into an extensive exploration of architectural subject matter, and, as my subject matter has expanded, so also has my attention to detail. I am exploring more, however, than the mere play of light and shadow on architectural forms. My subject matter is eclectic and provocative: suburban houses reminiscent of my childhood, older commercial buildings, dilapidated trailers, and careworn campers. The buildings and campers I paint hint at the lives of their occupants and suggest the possibility of beauty and mystery in the ordinary.
