Artist Statement

Exploring and creating have always been a part of my life. I spent most of my childhood wandering the woods searching for the beautiful. I am attracted to the patterns and shapes of nature - the layers in a landscape, the structure of a wildflower. I love a good problem that needs solving and painting involves solving one problem after another.

In my landscapes, there is often somewhere to go, a path to follow, a distant horizon to reach. Perhaps a reflection of my sense that there is something more to this life than what we can readily see. 

Paintings made from my imagination often have a surreal quality and although my plein air works are begun from what lies before me, I like to take these landscapes somewhere other than a realistic rendering.

I hope my work makes you think or wonder or laugh out loud.
