As an artist, I strive to share the emotion I experience while being surrounded by nature. Part of my process is to pay attention to my internal and external response to the light, movement, and texture of the landscape. Creating that emotion in my paintings requires: mark making, layering of oil and cold wax, and use of color. As I walk through nature, pieces of the landscape speak to me. I hope to create paintings that share these pieces of the landscape and my emotion to them allowing the viewer to respond to them in their personal way.
