||The layers of depth in nature are the focus in my work. Weathers effects, seasonal temperatures, decay, growth and moisture make painting it my greatest challenge and thrill. As I work I think of how these layers in nature reflects aspects of life and living from personal challenges to broader aspects of being human. Each painting is a little clue, a little growth, a little failure, and a little giving away.
For me each painting starts out as a scary venture of courage but as I work I tend to loose myself in the process and the way paint works on the panel surface. Beginning and ending a painting is the most difficult part of the process – the middle is a journey driven by something I cannot put into words.
