Work > Environments

My paintings are improvisations based on points where nature overcomes and reclaims human constructs. My observation and experience of nature lead me to compose energetically abstracted visions overflowing with color and hidden life.

Nature’s striking beauty is laced with aching replies to devastation and leanings into chaotic rage. This prevailing paradox is at once mysterious and comforting; fascinating and awe striking; terrifying and instructive.

Through painting, a momentary glimpse into the wild places around us becomes a glimmering composition honoring unsettling beauty, unspoken power and evidence of transformation. Layered hues and shifting images hint at the thin veil of paper and paint while provoking a view into deeper contemplation.

The improvisational process is mysterious and unpredictable. These works are not intended to be representations or records, yet they shimmer as memorials to the experiential.
