I am fascinated by the world around us. It lives, moves and breathes. It gives off energy and, in some cases, makes us feel and triggers a memory or an almost visceral response. My paintings take a single moment in time and freeze it on canvas so that when it is viewed it lives, moves and breathes again.
I wouldn\'t paint the subject unless it had an effect on me. I never paint people in my landscapes. The viewer should be part of the moment when looking at the painting otherwise it isn\'t a very good painting - at least for them.
