ARTIST STATEMENT

I am a landscape/seascape artist and work predominantly in oils. I create a lot of texture and richness in my pieces with the use of a palette knife and layers of color. My process is spontaneous and immediate. The goal of my work is to interpret Nature in all phases of movement, growth, expansion, explosion and evolution. I am endlessly fascinated by the earth’s pulse, power and abstractness.
