My paintings reflect my active engagement in dramatic and remote wilderness areas across the Western U.S. Often painting en plein air, I sometimes have meticulous control and at other times must relinquish my authority as an artist to the outdoor elements. In this way I feel the act of painting itself is a reflection of our morphing ecosystem and the human attempt to control its evolution. Goddess-like figures regularly emerge from my landscape paintings, which I welcome and accentuate as a representation of the soul of the earth. I choose to paint actual earthly places in a surrealistic manner to strengthen the connection between the physical world and inner psyche, in hopes of playing a small part in influencing a collective desire to protect and preserve our awe-inspiring planet.
