My work is an expression of my deep-felt connection with nature and its power to move the spirit. I expect each piece to reflect my struggles and, hopefully, triumphs with the formal concerns of painting. But what concerns me more profoundly is my visceral response to a quality of light… a formation of land… an unexpected juxtaposition of elements – and my ability to communicate that response.
With canvas in hand, I invariably head outdoors on location, wandering, pacing, and fretting until, to my great relief, the right subject matter reveals itself. And the dialog begins.
