Artist Statement

The feeling of being lost intrigues me. It happens when the wind shifts on an otherwise sunny day, or when
you are looking for a scenic view and get caught in a hailstorm. With an observant eye and a sketchbook, I
have always taken notice of these moments, both big and small. From a hefty cloud floating over a green
mountain, to a sandy plain before a looming storm, each scene elicits a personal response. My paintings are about reflecting on awe-inspiring moments in nature and how those moments spark change in one’s self.

When painting, I look at photo references and the works of other artists to inform my imagined landscapes.
Applying oil paint with brushes and palette knives, I use a variety of techniques to create layers of texture.
With bold brush strokes, I achieve a level of abstraction that challenges the viewer’s perception of nature.
