I am an impressionist-Plein air artist; embracing the methods and the philosophy of the French Impressionists of the 19th century, I paint exclusively from life. My art is all about frisson, getting thrilled by nature, of feeling large in the process of creation.

I don’t start a painting unless I am moved by what I see. Sometimes, I would wander around or drive around for hours, but if I am not captured from the very beginning, I don’t start, and when I am (captured), I continue as long as I am in a state of enchantment or that which enchanted me and wanted to come through me is no more.
