I work to create images which allow glimpses of the energies that animate and permeate the material world around us. Those energies may manifest as human emotion in portraits, the radiant energy of light in plein aire studies or as myths finding expression in the shapes of forest trees and other forms of nature. In some pieces I show this through use of gestural lines or the play of darks and lights. In other works, I may use pattern and geometry coming though in unexpected ways. It’s always exciting to see where the interaction between my work in progress and myself as the artist leads.
