Artist / Personal Statement
The great still life painter Giorgio Morandi once told a friend, “A painting, even if it is small and has few things in it, is sometimes so difficult to achieve in every part that you never know where you’ve gotten to.” For the past ten years I have lived around the corner from John F. Peto’s studio. It is as he left it at his death in 1907. I was introduced to his moody, pensive paintings at an exhibition in Houston, Texas over 20 years ago. There I saw Peto's small, simply structured still lifes. Their muted color and quiet design gave them a brooding silence, which I have loved and tried to imitate. With Peto and Morandi as guides, I don't always "know where I've gotten to" but I know where I want to be.

It's not often that I get back to Philadelphia. Not as much as I'd like to. If you ever wanted to see one of my works, there's a permanent installation in Phila... Find it here:
