Artist Statement

My work is inspired by nature and phenomena. It is based on thoughts about subjects ranging from weather, to climate change, to lunar landscapes, to catastrophic events caused by humans, to deep space, to the sky, to plants and forests, just to give some examples. My hope is to show a resiliency in nature, unrelated and apart from humans. I begin each of my works on paper by creating a visual situation that I will respond to. I emphasize shapes and contours that need to be seen, as a visual exercise of unbiased truth telling of what has occurred.
