Working within the landscape genre, my work explores the expressive possibilities of paint through gesture, texture, composition and color. My work varies in size from intimate acrylic works on paper to larger format canvases done in oil.

In my work I straddle the divide between abstraction and representational painting, looking for a perfect balance between the two. I use photographs that I’ve taken out on location as my source material, and with each painting I’m trying to recapture the reflective moments found in nature.

I still find the transformation of paint from an inanimate material into something that resonates with atmosphere and meaning a thrilling experience, and so I continue on.
