ARTIST STATEMENT (RÉSUMÉ follows)

 

I paint what I love: wildlands, people, and wildlife. 

 

My landscapes reflect a lifelong love affair with mountains, trees, moonrises and sets, and storms.  I spend a good deal of time in the wilderness with a camera, often at sunset or later. I paint places I frequent, transformed by weather and end-of-day light. Snow and moon phases visible in the daylight have a particular draw for me.    

 

In my paintings of nonhuman animals, I invite the viewer to consider our conflicted relationship with nature and the choices we can make to change course, a consideration at the heart of my work.

 

When I paint the human figure, my models are family and friends.  The work is infused with love and an understanding of who the person is. 

 

I endeavor to touch the essence of my subject, not to solve a problem of form or composition.

 

When one moves paint around on canvas, the forms that are the conceptual matrices and patterns underlying conscious experience emerge.  The painter steps aside and lets that process happen, allowing the painting to breathe and reveal its internal structures and symbols.

 

I am fortunate to have studied painting with Sam Scott.  He taught me to see seasonal color, to be fearless in painting my vision of nature, and to embrace beauty.  

 

I work in oils, and sometimes in watercolors, with the highest quality and least toxic materials available.  I paint on museum quality high-density hardboard panels made from US grown and renewable aspen. The 1/8 inch deep surface is acid-free, non-yellowing, and sits in a 2-inch deep hand-crafted cradle of premium-grade, 13-ply birch plywood, for maximum stability and a clean edge.
