My work reflects an ever evolving exploration into the complex emotion that I experience in the context of nature, particularly the forest.
The forest communicates a force that is at once identifiable and mysterious. There is for me an instant calming effect, a benevolent power that invites a contemplation of the mysteries of sustainability and how we are connected.
I take the visual and emotional experiences I feel and explore those elements in the paintings.
My observations of ever changing light, pulse, and energy together with the strength and geometry of the trees are communicated through the conscious and the subliminal memory.
within the process of my interpretation I allow for the exploration of both my intentional and accidental gestures with paint to capture the spirit.
