A persistent muse attracts me to drawing and painting. My tribute to that voice is expressed in plein air landscape paintings and alla prima studies. My art process begins with active observations and evolves into a contemplative expression of the moment. This reﬂective approach results in paintings that are often, but not always accessible and representational. When deeply engaged in my artwork I have a great feeling of liberation. Although it is not always an easy state to achieve, the restorative beneﬁts of immersing myself into timelessness when drawing and painting culminate in what I call active meditation.
