I am a landscape painter who spends time outside and notices the tangles and patterns in nature. I try to capture the brilliant light that gives a painting its life. I pay attention to the grays and subtle earthy tones as well as they balance out the light, allowing our eyes to rest. I am attracted to the bogs, the forgotten corners of the flow of the river. My paintings record the conversations that I have with nature, the results of careful observations. I work in watercolour, acrylic and oils and usually take watercolour materials with me into the backcountry.
