With sketchbook & camera, I search for places that resonate with meaning and memory. I am drawn to the “iconic” elements of nature: cathedral spaces, golden light, shimmering lake reflections, or mosaics of wildflower meadows.
In my studio, I initiate larger paintings using a red underpainting as the framework and heart of each piece. Next, with palette knife, brush and water, I blend, spray, splatter, scrap and layer with acrylic paint. This process is an attempt to capture the joy, energy and spirit of these places.
