My aim is to capture the modest beauty of the low-lying fields and wetlands of Long Island. While my color pencil drawings may give the illusion of detail, each composition is about an impression or feeling, rather than a documentation of a particular place. Capturing the nuances of light, atmosphere and color, I hope to translate to the viewer the quiet eloquence of these places. My aesthetics are from the American impressionist and tonalist traditions.
