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.
