Artist Statement

As an artist I attempt to build my own glossary to convey the natural/man made forms that surround us. The vastness of the land leads me to provoke the viewer to see familiar subject anew. This “natural geometric” approach gives the hard edged subject matter a feeling of solidity; be it clouds, mountains, rocks, vegetation or water. By reducing forms to their essence, shape and line become heightened. My use of a carefully edited palette, mark making and drawing, irresistibly draw and then continue to satisfy the eye. My hope is that the added spontaneity of the abstracted landscape/object, inspire the viewer towards imagination.
