My paintings reflect what I have personally experienced in a specific time and place in the past. Most often, nature is my muse, and I encode my personal wilderness experiences onto the canvas with paint. A language of mark making, paint handling, surface treatment and overall process form my artistic voice. These paintings are about so much more than the landscape. They are about memory. They intend to capture the emotional content of events which have previously unfolded around me. There is the experience that I actually had, and then there is the experience I remember. My paintings lean on the latter. Some are reflective of stillness and solitude, while others contain thoughts of moving water, weather and wildlife. The age of the Earth and the passage of time are embodied elements. I am in a constant search for the way to portray what I witness as the sublime.
