For over three decades my artistic practice has continually been informed by the language and voice of the land. I interpret this language in varying ways, as its breadth of character seems to range from strong to soft, silent to deafening. My work is directed by watching, listening and sitting alongside these moods. As I paint, I set out to decipher and reconcile the intangible elements of nature before me; the elements that make a moment both fleeting and enduring.
I paint in oils both outdoors and in my studio. Painting out on location and being a part of the environment is an invaluable part of the process when I return to my studio to create larger works. Directly observing and experiencing my subject influences not only my choices of color, but imprints a lasting sense of place. I paint to explore and share what I hold dear and hope that when others look at my paintings they too may recall their own unguarded moments with nature.
