When I paint in an abstract style I am responding to the moment and inquiring into the here and now. Feelings are stirred, memories evoked imagination comes out to play. In my landscapes it’s not so much that I am painting nature but more that I am painting my experience of it. Sometimes I am painting inner landscapes because often our inner lives are reflected in the art. Sometimes I seek to capture the simplicity and sometimes the complexity of life in a painting. These landscapes are both serene and energizing, and sometimes dark and desolate but always revealing a ray of light. The dark paintings I hope allow us to see through the darkness to the light in our lives.
