I have a strong connection to the landscapes in Northern California where I grew up and spent most of my adult years. Craggy coast lines, undulating mountain ranges, drifting fog banks, fire charred hillsides and the pools and rivers stricken by drought all find way into my work. Recently I relocated to the Northeast where the lush and changing land continues to influence my practice in ways I am still unsure. And although I am inspired by land, place and nature, all of my imagery is invented. It is detached from any historical or specific link to time or place. Ultimately, this work is about transcendental beauty and connectivity between humans and nature, and to the self and the sublime.
