artist's statement

I am curious about the liminal space in between clearly perceived moments. The speed of our existence leaves us with fleeting glimpses of nature. Painting outdoors deepens my sensory connection to the physical world. Witnessing what the landscape communicates through changing light, temperature and atmosphere allows me to present a vision of the environment that transcends its physical appearance, communicating the unity of nature and human spirit. Back in the studio, working from memory allows details to fall away while the most essential elements arise, revealing the truth of a place.
