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.
