VIEW IN MY ROOM
Immerse yourself in a world of vibrant colors and the simple joys of nature with this captivating 20" x 16" oil painting. At its heart, it's a celebration of the enchanting palette found in a vintage glass canning jar, filled with a gathering of freshly cut Zinnias. The bouquet spills over the jar's rim, with leaves gracefully draping, as if nature itself is reaching out to share its beauty. In the background, a tapestry of light is created through simple geometric shapes, reminiscent of windows. These shapes, in soft, light colors, create a dreamy and contemplative atmosphere that complements the lively Zinnias. The painting's palette is a symphony of happiness: magentas, oranges, yellows, reds, creams, pastel pinks, blues, and violets. Each color dances harmoniously, inviting you to explore the depths of its charm. As the artist, I drew inspiration from my love for flowers and the wonder they bring to life. This artwork is a tribute to the marvels that can flourish in a garden, and my admiration for vintage glass canning jars, which symbolize a simpler way of life and a profound connection to the Earth.

ARTISTS STATEMENT: I observe, and participate in, the change of hues. I stand alone in a perspective—influenced by the roads and detours that I’ve chosen. The subjects I interpret on canvas dance with tradition, but underneath exists an individual search for freedom. As a creator, I’ve always been interested in working with color. I see my life as having a palette of its own and I seek to have the chroma of my experiences come through in my paintings. Over time, I’ve realized the only way to achieve this goal is to risk exposure—to unveil my simplified forms to the viewer. Whether the forms operate within the context of landscape or still life, the resulting narrative is always a story of merit, regardless of public perception or understanding. BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION: I was born in Vancouver, BC in 1958 and then moved to California which is where my parents originally met. I lived there until I was 6 when my family moved across the US to New Jersey for my father's work. I grew up in a creative family and pursued art in college only to leave it upon graduation, dabbling with it over the years that followed. In 2010 I returned to painting on a more committed basis. This was spawned by some significant life changes and painting became my respite. I still reside in New Jersey and as an artist I appreciate the proximity to both Philadelphia and New York City. I've been showing my work since 2011 and continue to do so.
