I do not aim for “flawlessness” – my work leaves a trace of a fluid, organic process and a human set of hands. Windswept trees, cold blue bodies of water, and lichen covered granite boulders intrigue and inform my artistic palette. Gentle curves, textured surfaces, and meandering lines speak through my art. Atmosphere, expressive brush strokes, and simple glazes mimic the timelessness of nature.
