“Painting for me is an emotional experience about a real place, memory or feeling. A work without a personal reason is just painting a picture for me. I strive for honest, unadorned, personal statements about the beauty of life and the land that is so often taken for granted. I seek simplicity, understatement, substance and emotional truth in my work. I want to be the best observer and dreamer that I can be in my life.”
