“I am continually interested in landscape. What I observe affects how I feel, and vice versa. I work from memories of recent woodsy walks, or journeys north in the car. Visible from my current studio, is a wild estural marshland, whose seasonal shifts in colors and light also inform my work. Areas of thin paint poured or applied like a wash onto flat, un-stretched canvas, contrast with thicker paint applied with a brush or palette knife. Through abstraction and play, the rhythm varies between swift calligraphic strokes and slow considered marks as I attempt to create landscapes which are both familiar and unknown. I want the work to attract the viewer with beauty and simultaneously prompt curiosity.”
