"My artistic process is a fusion of traditional landscape painting studies with an intuitive approach in creating more contemporary meditative compositions. My explorations and study in various disciplines of printmaking such as drypoint, Ecoprints, monotype/monoprint have informed my painting and vice versa.
Many of my paintings and prints are influenced by synesthesia.
The interpretation of Landscape is an infinite quest I must explore; deconstruct, refine, simplify, defy, blur, mark, scrape, saturate, desaturate... in essence, to paint the landscape in various and countless forms is to journal life in all it's tenderness and boldness, it's depth and light.
The paintings are open to interpretation and I encourage the viewer to create their own journey in finding personal significance in connection to the art."
