Artist statement

Painting is a study of our existence, spirit, and environment,derived from experiences in life. I choose landscapes that evoke aesthetic experiences, create situations of atmospheric mystery, and bring visual interest through interaction. I’m intrigued by subtle shifts in value and color; yet seek a personal interpretation of the landscape rather than a replication. Personality is revealed through the process of painting. Abstract remnants from my process remain visible in the final product. The hand must obey the spirit.
