I paint the Western landscape – the geography of home. The West is a land of contrasts. At times the landscape is meditative and soothing, at times foreboding.
I communicate this duality in my paintings. I want the viewer to share my sense of awe for the West’s natural beauty. To appreciate the nuances of its light and the sculptural character of its hills. To experience the expansiveness of its dramatic skies, oceans, and rolling hills. To value this natural landscape which is our home.
It is a home that can nurture us and provide solace. It is also a home that needs to be cherished and protected.
