Imagine the smell of pine, wildflowers or a freshly cut hay field. The texture of soft lichen on granite rocks. The sensation of a storm moving in. Or simply the wind in your face. Remember the feeling you had as a kid, lying in the grass and watching the clouds move and change. My inspiration is derived from such imaginings. When you view my paintings, perhaps my artistic expression will awaken your unique emotions and we can share these feelings together.
When I create a piece of artwork, I’m on an intuitive journey, coalescing the natural world with structural elements. These essential, abstract components take shape as I paint. While applying the layers of paint; the colors, luminosity, textures and spaces change and many times they seem to have a mind of their own. Eventually, all aspects of the painting integrate to become a powerful, yet lyrical composition of heart and mind.
