Artist Statement

My work is involved with the landscape and inspired by abstract patterns against atmospheric color. My paintings are about a solitary discovery of place and the unconscious forms generated from the experience. An emotional undercurrent is important to my imagery and my use of paint is mostly expressionistic within this framework. The landscape becomes a launching point for my imagination and interpreting the experience through painting a form of meditation.
