About the Work:
My paintings are inspired by nature and the landscape. I work both in oils and encaustic paints, and enjoy the specific results that I can get from each of these mediums. I work with multiple layers of paint and use translucent glazing in combination with opaque layers to achieve depth and luminosity. In my work I use the landscape as my inspiration and jumping off point for exploring qualities such as light, color, atmosphere, depth, luminosity and a sense of mystery and beauty.
I'm drawn to the atmospheric qualities of air and light, and I love the mysterious and moody qualities of shadows and fog. Frequent themes in my work include interpretations of sky, water, trees, birds, bees, fog and passages of light and color.
