Being an artist is about being more aware of the life around us. Noticing the sky, the trees, the colors and mutual arising of both form and space. For me the painter is a communicator that uses color, form, tone and texture to express and share this heightenedawareness. I am a process painter; that is to say that my painting is part of my daily practice toward seeing and expressingthings more deeply; henceliving more fully...

My work is often semi-representationalin that it presents a subjective and simplified perspective rather than as an attempt to reproduce objectivereality. I often do what can be described as “atmospheric landscapes” but l am open to explore a wide range of representational subject matter. I also occasionally do some non-representational expressionist abstract and action painting. Most of my work is with acrylic on canvas but I have worked with oil and watercolor as well.
My paintings are first intended to please the eye and to engage the mind and emotions. I want my work to inspire emotion, provoke inner reflection, to evoke associations. To paradoxically transport the viewer to into the piece and make them more fully present as the observer of it.
