Artist Statment

As I look at landscape, I retain the forms, colors, and textures in my memory as separate elements. On the canvas they combine in new ways, different from how they appear in nature, but consciously brought together and reconstituted to form a composition—a new place, a landscape-dream environment that has its own logic and integrity.


I set up a tension between figuration and abstraction, between the familiar and the otherworldly, and between memory and imagination. My intention is to draw the viewer into an imagined world, at times enchanted or mysterious, even unsettling.
