My work is based on landscapes and the human figure, and the issues that surround both. I see my work as a recording of the internal and external landscape and use this landscape as a vehicle for exploring the emotional terrain that lies within.
To me, the act of painting encompasses all of who I am. Using the simplest of line and shape, the subtlest shift of color, my goal is to evoke an emotion, a feeling, a memory... initially for me in the doing and then again for the viewer. I paint what I need to paint and am delighted when someone connects to it and it changes how they see their landscape.
