Artist Statement: "Color, light, texture, and form: four elements in nature that have captivated me for years! Whether I am looking at the grandeur of the landscape, a gemstone, or ink as it is spread across a printing plate, I continually look for ways to incorporate my fascination with these phenomena in my artistic creations. Although I will pursue a single theme in a variety of mediums and styles, these threads are present, regardless of the materials I choose. My work varies from impressionistic to abstract. Art enables me to express feelings that cannot be said with words: similarly, abstraction provides me a way to convey emotions that cannot be portrayed with realism. Much of my inspiration can be found in the contrast of weather beaten rocks and canyons of the southwest with softer elements such as vegetation, water, and cloud formations. The duality of the ancient with the ephemeral keeps me returning to explore with brush, canvas, metal, stone, pigment, and paper."
