My artistic practice draws inspiration from the natural and built world we live in. I am drawn to pattern, texture, mark-making and saturated use of color. The vignettes I create are meant to represent an idealized sense of memory or place. Void of people or animals, I want the viewer to experience what I did in that location, a sense of timelessness and a moment of quite in a busy world. A peek towards an interior can offer a welcoming sense of respite. And rural locales can force one to see an idealized setting in the absence of the manmade.
