I paint what’s around me every day; the cup of coffee, animals, river. Most paintings are interiors, but the rivers and seascapes beyond the windows are equally important and don’t tend to remain outside. Blowing leaves, birds or wolves may share space with a reading chair and sleeping dog. By using unlikely combinations of elements or points of view, the images are shifted beyond everyday reality, investing them with heightened significance. A cup of coffee in a daybreak living room and leaves blowing upriver in warm summer wind are interwoven, all things that carry the mind home, bringing life into quiet kitchens.
