Artist's Statement

My work reflects scenes of nature and landscape that have inspired me throughout my life.  Whether it be the frothy waters of Lake Michigan or open plains from my journey out west- these beautiful scenes bring back strong memories that have shaped my life.  

I do not go into painting with a strict plan, but rather use a layering process that embraces chance and change.  I apply thin layers of paint that develop into pieces with intense, bold color.  The process of working and creating is truly an art in itself.  These images are small pieces of life’s adventures.
