Artist Statement

On horseback, on foot and with wolfhounds, inspiration and motivation come from being present.

Like secret lovers, the senses and sensuality of the forest with its ambience, aesthetics and vibration provide seed for the work. If conjoined I stumble upon color combinations, line, and form that I never would have conjured on my own.

My paintings are about the mystery beneath the surface, the layer woven between worlds. The romance and richness of beauty, earth, salt air, wild roses and pine needles. I paint the poetry.
