Background

    I work primarily as a landscape painter, focusing on the environment around me or places I have spent time. I value observation and a naturalistic approach to painting, while also exploring abstract qualities of color, shapes and light. My favorite media are watercolor and painting, as well as pencil and pen sketches. My influences come from early 20th century painters; and images and ideas from modern science. My work often plays with the process of seeing, combining naturalistic scenes with flat patterned or color field surfaces. Having moved from the east coast to the American southwest, I often explore desert landscapes and places on the west coast, finding inspiration in the subtle richness and seasons of a more arid climate.
