"The interaction of shape, contras, and line cause me to transform these forms into images in paintings, collage, and prints. Of particular interest to me are structures that are juxtaposed into landscape. I strive to create images that possess tension between the representational and the abstract. 

"I paint in the studio and plein aire from preliminary sketches in charcoal, pencil, and oil pastel, and take reference photographs as necessary. My finished paintings are in oils and acrylics on gesso prepared paper, panel, and canvas. I also create monotypes and images from cut paper and collage. I am an avid drawer and fill journals with sketches and narrative from travels. Through line, contrast, texture, color, and composition I explore my responses to form and shape where things in the natural world and things that are made by man collide."
