Artist Statement

I am a painter in the minimalist tradition.

My primary focus is with nature’s color, my response and maturation of that color. How I best convey the emotional impression of a particular hue is through the awareness and susceptibility of light. My work is contemplative and a tool for meditation. I don’t give all the answers. I want the viewer to enter the work and stay a while and have their own journey. My years as a horticulturist and Landscape Architect refined my sensibilities of light and it’s involvement with the land and it’s intrinsic fascination.
