Artist Statement

Inspired by Turner and the Romantics, I aspire to convey the experience of being immersed in the landscape rather than making a realistic representation of it. Creations born of experience and memory of place, my works begin as abstractions; manipulating oil paint, exploring spaces that exist only on the canvas, blurring and rubbing back, adding, and reducing until eventually a narrative is revealed. Like memories indistinct, they generate an atmospheric poetry, if only momentarily.”
