My work begins with nature observed. History, literature, intuition and emotion help me interpret the experience visually. Mark making, and color set the mood. The palette, while related to reality is not necessarily naturalistic. It often emphasizes the subtlety and power of a single hue. Gradually, the work evolves from an observed landscape to one of personal feeling, dreams and memory.
