“As a child I would spend as much time outdoors as allowed. I believe this appreciation of nature led to a later affinity for the naturalistic paintings of the late 19th century. This influence is apparent, as I paint using traditional techniques, and strive to capture the subtle natural appearance of land and atmosphere in my work.

This group of paintings represent a reflection on my recent move to the Midwest from Boston, a trip of roughly a thousand miles. Landscapes of the Northeast are painted with a certain nostalgia, and of the Midwest with a sense of discovery and exploration.”
