Studio is just behind the old Wapos Restaurant.
My art and life are all about the Epic Quest - always longing for the horizon, the place beyond the familiar. This has informed my lifestyle of combining art and travel, specifically to artist residencies. This has had a profound impact on the work that I do.
I paint mostly in acrylic paint and mixed media - including drawing, collage and photo transfer. My work is primarily abstract but I often photo transfer images of trees or water to reflect the natural world. Each painting is really it's own journey, each brushstroke a bushwhack into the unknown. I paint intuitively and am always looking for clues how to proceed.
I also do printmaking - specifically solar plate etchings and monotypes. I love combining many different techniques, including drawing and collage.
I have been a participant of Open Studios since the late 90's and always love to interact with the public around my art. It's such a great opportunity to connect and build community, especially around the creative process!
