My paintings are of animals, plants, and landscapes seen through a moment of shifting focus. I paint the way I explore the rugged mountains where I live, always pushing to see what is over the next hill, searching for the unexpected.
Artifacts of the creative process can be seen in the rich varied textures, raw worked surfaces, fragile subtle marks and veiled light qualities created by working and reworking the piece. As one image comes into focus another is fading away, retaining a piece of the previous while hinting at what might come next.
The result of my search in paint mirrors the constant changes found in nature.
