A Statement from the Artist

What I see is a disconnection between people and nature. What I can do, as an artist, is to act as a go-between. Through my paintings I am attempting to liberate the earth and sky by bringing it down to a flat surface – to a personal level. I hope to evoke a complex and moving response, by providing viewers with a window onto a landscape that might or might not be. My paintings remind the viewer that once again we can be aware of our relationship with the environment and the power behind it.

I am looking forward to the future rewards and challenges. I believe that we as teachers and artists leave an everlasting mark on society. This is especially evident in the field of art, where we make our marks physically, providing future generations with a reminder of who we were, what we thought, and what we hoped to accomplish.
