Artist Statement:

I move paint-as-paint with straightforward descriptions of the natural world, unpeopled landscapes in which a modest number of elements – a house, a barn, a tree, bushes, grass, sky,  lakes recur with a quiet strength and simplicity. I hope to give a sense of the place with a distance that leaves space for the presence of the miraculous in everyday life.
