Artist's Website

My paintings are landscapes that twist and turn and are tossed about and split apart. Sometimes they merge into sky or water, or disappear off the edge of a cliff. Flooding is a regular occurrence. I view the painting process as a portal to my interior life and responses to environmental and global events; it has evolved out of a deep fascination with a metaphor of landscape and the expressive possibilities of oil paint. In moving paint over and around the surface, weather and geological processes become agents of change, acting on landforms that are repositories of memory and accumulated experience. I meander through a landscape versus describing it, and capture not a moment but a process - forms, elements and events, moving and changing over time.
