"I am in a perpetual state of awe and wonder in the landscape. As a visual artist and teacher, I am driven by design – color, form and composition. I look for these in the natural world, and desire to present these in new, different and unique ways.
"Through color and texture, I emphasize the often overlooked aspects of the our environment and its compositional structures, while downplaying or minimizing the obvious. The result is to force new ways of seeing … prompting surprising revelations about our world and ourselves.
“Texture is always a prominent feature of my paintings. The texture dynamic operates in both the physical and psychological and emotional arenas. The application of layer upon layer of thick paint is one of my favorite activities as a painter.
“I'm very excited to be living in Arizona and painting out in the incredible landscape. My work has always been about attitudes, choices and the act of ‘seeing’ versus merely ‘experiencing’. It’s about the nature of reality and what we claim to know about it. I’m not interested in providing you familiar images of things you’ve seen in the ways you always see them. I want to change the way you look at things. I want you to see things differently… what if we were willing to actually do that?”
