My paintings are responses to the extraordinary reverence one experiences in the presence of nature. The magic of the movement, the light, and the scale, combined with my perceptual experience, have led me to move beyond literal references to landscapes to capture the visceral quality of the feeling of nature.


I always begin my paintings with a strong gestural line. From that starting point, shapes evolve. They are usually organic shapes that nudge each other. The immediacy and quick drying of the acrylic paint allow me the flexibility to layer shapes, adding depth and complexity to my compositions. Buoyant color choices play a crucial role in the paintings’ emotional impact.


To me, these paintings are joyful explorations of nature’s vastness.
