Artist Statement

 I create most of my work using thin layers of oil, charcoal, and graphite. I am a minimalist, intuitive painter, layering and removing pigment to build up a soft, velvety feel.  I view my work as a series of abstract narratives.

My vision is to create immersive environments which reflect and transform our emotional states. I use rock formations, skies and bodies of water because they embody different qualities of density and spaciousness. Immersion and expansion are key conceptual elements in my work. My hope is to spark a spiritual connection and a sense of belonging in the physical world.
