I'm a contemporary landscape artist who lives and paints in the mountains of rural Northern New Mexico. My paintings reflect my love of places off the beaten path, and the unexpected associations and subtle contrasts present in nature. My current process combines oil, cold wax, powdered pigments and other natural materials that are layered and excavated to reveal hidden depths of color and texture. Certain landscapes choose us, and work on us profoundly long after we've left them. This personal geography is as unique to each of us as a fingerprint. The rich and abiding relationship to the places that have claimed me forms the foundation for my ongoing work.
