My current work revolves around landscape, both real and imagined. I am intrigued by textures, the ever-changing light and atmosphere, and the relationship and interaction of earth and sky. With a blend of both realism and abstraction using a variety of media, I am trying to impart my visceral, emotional response to place, rather than the actual representation of it.
