Artist's Statement

Combining landscape design drawings, stark architectural elements and loosely interpreted botanical forms, the paintings manifest a range of felt energies reflected through the natural world in an invented space. The shaping power of limitation, barely visible but suggested by various forms, is the primary motivation of the image.

Lush paint, the physicality of the execution and the history of decisions are obvious and unapologetically optical. Form is referential but not realistic, inviting the viewer’s participation.
