I feel most at home when I am out in nature, I am inspired by the creatures of the earth, the sky and the waters of our big beautiful planet. For this show, A Little Levity, I wanted to portray the whimsical side of life. I feel art should be a form of escape, I like to portray the humor and loveliness of life as opposed to the sadness.
I am drawn to beauty and light in humans and all creatures so I want my creations to reflect that. The subject matter for this show ranges from birds we might see here in Cape May painted to suggest they are having a dialog amongst themselves to a painting of two alpacas that are both tiktok famous. I also included a garden scene that is a collage of pealed paint pieces, I like to think of it as a busy city scene where one might wonder about the occupants of that city. I work mostly in acrylic paint but often incorporate other media. I like the idea of suggesting a story or narrative and I love when someone points out a fresh view that I might not have caught.
