Artist Statement

Time, nature, and the obsessive need to leave my mark… elements and energy flows… my work is a reflection on life processes and ecological cycles and the interdependence of things. I am particularly interested in the intersection of the natural world with the man-made environment and in recent years I have observed the many changes that man has brought to the natural terrain. I find myself rushing to record the moments preceding the changes, the moments just before the balance of life is altered irrevocably. The paintings become visual diaries, internal maps of vanishing landscapes and vanishing cultures. A painting evolves slowly, through layers of gesso, paint, charcoal and glazes. I often work on the floor, circling around, building up, scraping away, centering, focusing, performing the ritual gestures that are part of the process. It’s an organic process, through which I become in touch with who I am and how the world is.
