Artist Statement

My art is my “journal,” composed mostly of my own version of the landscape, from a lifetime of enjoying the outdoors. Often the images I use are from my memories, as I strive to capture the mood, rather than the details of a place. The majority of my work is representational, but typically not in the manner of traditional realism. I often start a new painting without a specific composition or image in mind.

Some of my recent works are painted on a plaster surface that I have textured and imprinted with shapes and images. Most of my paintings utilize a combination of water-based mediums such as acrylic paint and acrylic inks, and often including rice papers and other collage papers to create interesting surfaces. Upon this surface I apply color in a somewhat random manner, and then I develop images. Sometimes the surface itself suggests a composition and leads me as I complete the painting.
