Jury - 2021 CHESTER COUNTY STUDIO TOUR
For as long as I can remember I have been able to find solace in nature. It is, and continues to be the biggest inspiration in my life, and my work as an artist. I have always been passionate about animals-especially birds. They have such a unique energy and spirit about them. Every type of bird has it's own set of personality traits which I try to bring out in my work by paying special attention to detail in the face, and eyes. I believe the eyes are truly windows to the soul, so capturing them is the most important aspect of my process. I also try to accentuate the features I see with each piece through bold use of color, and creation of texture through purposeful brushstrokes.
