Artist's Statement


I see our world as multi-layered, with most layers hidden from plain view.  I try to reflect layers in my paintings, so that observers can draw different and personal experiences from them. My inspirations come from nature and music, and the moods they create.  Mountains, water, rocks, wind, trees, grasses, rhythm, weather, the galaxy -- all of these come into play.


Painting, for me, is a peaceful and joyful process.  The paints and water form the quiet foundation for the layers I build.  Most often, my first layer heads in one direction, and a totally different painting evolves after adding layers.  Being free to evolve with my painting captures the creative process for me.
