My paintings focus on the relationship between humankind and the environment using images of symbolic landscapes. Because stewardship, and consumption along with the destruction of the landscape become an issue of increasing relavence in the world, our impact on the landscape is an idea I seek to illustrate.
Inspired by the vastness and spiritual character of the landscape, and the rich presence of past cultures, my work begins to reflect respect for the care of the land and its resources. This ongoing theme remains present in my recent work. The paintings address the meeting of nature and cultural demands. They examine these fragile bonds through the relationships of common materials, landscape imagery and color.
