The work I create is a synthesis of imagined and real landscapes. My work evolves from observation. Often my finished paintings are like collages, gathered from sketches I have done in “plein air” and mix them with fragments from my memory and imagination. My vision catalogs the emotional response triggered by earths’ abundant resources and ecosystems. The variety of marks in my paintings are about the speed of nature, the mood of the land and the shapes of the plants. Nature is so resilient, constantly evolving and changing to survive. My work engages in dialog with the art historical cannon of abstraction and impressionism.
