ARTIST STATEMENT Though the source of inspiration for my work is based in the landscape, I mostly work in the studio drawing on memory and sensory impressions gathered from different places I've lived and visited. This way of working allows me to focus on expressing my inner experience of outer nature. After many years of looking at the land and sky to create illusions of it, I am now more interested in playing with form and materials to give a total effect of landscape or nature as I experience it. Light, color, movement, weather and seasons become the subject matter. An illusion of space has given way to an implied space, one that is arranged and felt in almost a childlike manner. Paintings are begun with the slimmest of intentions and in the process I discover odd relationships and unexpected color harmonies.
