I am inspired by the natural world. Nature draws me in to watch and listen. My interest in the landscape reflects both the romantic concept of finding solace in the beauty of nature, as well as more contemporary issues of human complicity in the destruction of the environment.
An infinite variety of forms inspire my work – the illusive and ever-changing beauty of water, the fleeting and unreachable sky, and the irregular yet repetitive shape of trees.
A recurring subject of my work is the ocean. I never tire of gazing at the sea, a mysterious and constantly changing reflection of it’s surroundings. Colors shift subtly by the moment, and rhythmic patterns are created by wind and tide. It is a subject that is abstract and real all at once.”
