Artist Statement

My images are based on the landscape real or imagined. They are a representation, not a documentation of nature. While the landscape is a jump-off point, I am more concerned with creating a strong, emotional and positive image than in recreating a specific place. Each series begins with a group of loose drawings. These paintings provide the motifs that I will work over many times changing treatment of color, proportion and position.

Directions

In downtown Greenville, take E. Park Ave, cross Stone Ave, and E. Park becomes E. North St. Continue on E. North for a mile. #1738 is on the right, past the elementary school.
