I see poetry in the landscape...the natural world provides endless inspiration and pause for intuitive interpretations in my paintings. Light and dark, power and grace resonating, ephemeral...the spirit in a stone, light reflecting on water in colors so layered and magical, the earthy sweet smell on the leaves just after a rain- the space between, moments of silence, simplicity and a celebration of the beauty of imperfections.
