Statement
I am inspired by the vast open space and 180 degree view of the distant horizon. It’s my desire to share the peace and tranquility inherent in nature. The simple shape and form of sky, ground and horizon are a balm capable of soothing the restless soul. I begin each painting with an interest in what is going to happen, not what has already occurred.  I paint what moves me, and work uninterrupted for long stretches of time, tranquil in the mystery of uncovering what I cannot see or have not yet imagined.  There are no perimeters or restrictions, just the goal to create for the viewer a feeling of expansiveness.
