Growing up I always went for the woods. There is something about being away from the city and cars that helps quiet my mind and allows me to delve deeply into my inner world.
Painting has been the means by which I reveal how I think and understand life. My style has naturally developed over a lifetime.
I paint familiar landscapes but the work is not so much a representation of Nature as an illustration for the story I tell.
I look to Nature for truth.
As an artist I strive to create a thought-provoking physical object that records the musings of my individual mind.
So, I set the scene, design the set, add the characters and call, “action”. You might think of the painting as a visual poem or a page from a story.
The mystery always remains.
