ARTIST STATEMENT
Growing up in North Florida and years of travel through the West and Northwest have
filled my inspiration cup full to overflowing. As I walk miles of wilderness trails, I find
myself enraptured with the way the fog settles between mountains, how the light finds
its way through the tallest of Redwoods, the kiss of sun glistening on coastal waters. It
is these moments that capture my heart and my imagination and move me to put paint
to canvas. I carry them with me in photographs and memory until I am ready to allow
them to spill forth in color. Through acrylic paintings on canvas and panel, I am seeking
to capture the feeling not just of a place, but of a moment. From that inspirational
scene, I begin my composition, building up layer upon layer of acrylic color and
transparent glazes, until the surface is transformed into a representation of my
experience of that locale and moment in time. The surfaces convey the sense of
atmosphere and mystery I find in these wild and untamed places, mirroring the wildness
in us all.
