Artist Statement

Painting is my way of expressing what I see and how I feel. Horses are a constant subject in my work as I find the equine form endlessly fascinating and beautiful in line, form, movement and expression.

My interest is in the connection between horse and rider, the process of training and pursuit of perfection in unity and movement. I reflect and draw on the parallels of this horse rider partnership with the possible human experience of living well with grace, harmony, patience and understanding.
