The power, beauty, and mystery of the landscape inspire me.
Rather than documenting a specific place or time, I choose my subjects by the mood and emotion they evoke.
I am drawn to quiet spaces that allow me to incorporate my own invented imagery into the painting. My use of watercolor inks on a very wet surface allows the paint to flow and settle with some degree of uncertainty.
This process, while somewhat unforgiving, gives a spontaneity to the work, and the atmospheric quality of the paint creates a sense of mystery.
