I work primarily as a painter, but also create collages and encaustics, (wax paintings). My daily walks in nature, where I observe both subtle and dramatic changes, inform both my impressionistic landscapes and my abstract work. I find patterns and compositions in both the large view as well as the smaller more intimate picture. My eye tends to study the spatial and color relationships between objects. I notice where things touch, overlap, or separate. The structure of trees and the interplay of branches and limbs is a frequent theme. I am interested in the spaces in between! I abstract my compositions to emphasize what stands out or draws my attention.
