Artist Statement

My paintings come from a soulful connection with nature and landscape. The work ranges from plein air landscapes to abstractions, and both mimic the recurrent forms and shapes found in nature and anatomy. I do not wish to capture a natural scene with realism but rather with emotion. I create locally sourced natural earth pigments that I complete most of my paintings with. Utilizing the actual land as paint is a way to capture the primitive energy of the land in a tangible form. Reimagining land and body in an emotional and abstract way pushes the work into the metaphysical realm. My hope is to help heal others through creative expression and inspire others to create art in an uninhibiting and personal way.
