Many of my paintings are my interpretation of the landscape and nature. My artwork rarely reflects a specific scene, but rather a combination of memories and imagination. I challenge myself to simplify, to push objects and color to abstraction. What emerges is a painting that each viewer can see with their own ideas of place and emotion.
Using layers upon layers of acrylic paints, pastels, charcoal, graphite and other media, rich textures and expressive surfaces are created. Through a process of building layers, mark making, erasure and rebuilding, the resulting imagery is often ambiguous, challenging the viewer to find their own meaning and interpretation of the the work.
