I began painting landscapes out of a longing to return to the comfort, mystery and silence embodied in the land I knew as a child. I have alternately found myself living in urban and rural settings but regardless of my surroundings I am compelled to paint land - either as a reflection of my environment or as a depiction of a memory. It is always a meditation of sorts, recognition of the holiness inherent in earth. I do not aspire to create paintings that directly represent or imitate my surroundings. I simply attempt to whisper faintly that sound I hear when I am in the right place.
