“My interest in light, space, spirit, and gesture are reflected in my paintings of the natural landscape.

I look for areas of light in the deep space between and through trees.  I watch for the sun as it sits in the layers of the canopy, and I look at the variety of textures and colors.  My eyes track the movement of light within the spaces, and the leaves.  Seeing and making art about the play of light and space allows for more of those things in my life.”
