Artist Statement

For several years, I concentrated on paintings inspired by vintage photographs. The first were based on photographs of my husband's family dating from around 1910, photographs that I have loved ever since encountering them several decades ago. I was strangely moved by these images of people, now gone, who were so youthful and full of life at the time the photos were taken. Lives, frozen for a moment and preserved now only by virtue of the photograph. Perhaps my painting them could bring them a bit more to life?

From that original series I moved on to explore the magic of vintage photographs gathered from various sources old photo albums of friends, museum collections, photos discovered online, etc. Those I was drawn to seemed in some fashion to capture an era, a time gone by. The paintings currently on display on this wall reflect this interest, as it evolved. To see more paintings in this series, check out my website and click on "Album Series."
