Artist Statement
I use the landscape as a springboard. From it I distill what is mysterious, ephemeral and often dreamlike--nuances of fog, rain and quickly changing weather or the play of dark form/mass against brilliant light. Most, therefore, are portraits of a particular place or time of day where or when shadows are deep and the light is intense, or uncommon. The experience of working on-site in these constantly changing conditions becomes an integral part of the piece.

Most recently, I’ve been working on a series of night scenes both rural and urban. Objects and images which by daylight seem incidental and commonplace, become simplified and extraordinary at night under limited or artificial light. These result in compositions that speak as much about form and abstract shape as they do about atmosphere and essence.
