Plein Air Bio

As a Plein Air painter my philosophy is “You have to be there”. What I mean by this is the act of being engaged with a regional influence which precedes the specific narrative. The majority of these paintings are the result of trips I take to areas I become interested in. Light, atmosphere, vegetation, topography and architecture, along with the people who reside in these places create the meaning for which I hope will give the painting its soul.
