I make paintings, sculptures, and prints. While investigating a multiplicity of materials, processes, form, and content. Inspired by the natural world, I always come back to landscapes as a place to practice expressive painting. 

 

Mountains have always called to me with the allure of huge monuments and epic vistas. As a place they are challenging and nurturing. As a subject they are dynamic and dimensional. They are emblems of amazing beauty and indicators of brutal climate change. 

 

I encounter nature in all its facets and share the beauty of the natural environment through my artwork.  I walk, explore, and paint the world I see. Creating fluid, graphic, abstract art that is grounded in direct experience.  Trails, maps, paintings of a view, and sketches of details together reflect and embody my experience, showcasing the story and identity of a place.  I record nature's wild in contrast to the organized space of the human experience, acknowledging the points of intersection.
