My work is inspired by living, breathing nature. As a landscape artist, my paintings range from more formal impressionist landscapes to abstracted forms. I play with color and light to capture fleeting moments and I tend to work quickly and vigorously. I don't like to fuss - the spontaneous marks in my work are the rapid impressions that reflect my personal experience of the world. I don't see static trees, rocks, hills and clouds but rather experience the sense of a dark moving shape, the solid embrace of a valley, a fleeting ray of colored light or a pulsing, breathing sky. My ambition is to give the viewer a personal and sensory experience of a changing environment rather than of static objects within it. Above all, I hope to connect you with not just the places I paint but with the emotion and human connection those places inspire.
