Artist's Statement

Most of my life I’ve had an insatiable curiosity about the natural world (particularly birds, turtles and insects) and my place in it.  I still love to turn over rocks and logs to see what might be there, and I still bring my binoculars with me wherever I go. 

As a landscape painter I tend to take a more intimate approach to what we normally think of as landscapes, often finding that such things as a handful of forest floor debris can be more interesting than a grand view of mountains and valleys. But, micro or macro, my main concern is still space, form, light and color, and the subject matter is just as real either way – only the scale differs.
