Artist Statement 

My work explores landscape and the natural world.  It evokes the subtle place hovering between realism and abstraction, a sense of nostalgia is often present.  A twig or a piece of moss might trigger the viewers’s memory of having been in this place before. Some paintings begin in the field employing classical plein air techniques, others originate in the print studio with coaxing and layering the image, then scraping away to reveal the light.
