Having spent much of my life out of doors, my paintings reflect my connection with the landscape as I experience it; whether on my own land, or in some of the most remote areas in the country. That is where
I find beauty and where I can make sense of the world.
From a more traditional landscape style, my paintings are moving toward the abstract, or what I call “minimalist landscapes” (Please see "Earth & Air on my portfolio page). Striving to strip away almost everything recognizable as landscape, I want to reveal just the essentials. Sky and land, coming together as a far-off horizon, with just a hint of what lies between. Then, instead of depicting a particular location, the painting evokes the emotion or memory of place.
