Artist Statement

Obsessed by nature's mysterious movement and light,
I focus on those ineffable moments in nature that silence me.
In the studio I paint these moments on gold and silver leaf.
The leaf reflects changing light and captures ephemeral moods.
After more than five years painting on gold leaf,
it is still an endlessly unfolding experiment.

Process

The physical process begins with coating and sanding
the canvas until it becomes a silky surface.
Then I smooth on a traditional red paint,
lay the gold or silver leaf, and coat it with layers of varnish.
Using the finest quality sable brushes,
I paint layer upon layer of paint and varnish developing
the image until it culminates in a moment of light!
