Artist’s Statement
Painting in the landscape has allowed me to combine two of my passions— nature and travel. I work on location and try to capture a unique sense of place wherever I go.

Place means an area where I have spent time and been moved enough to paint several times over. I absorb the image, space, scent and light. Like Cezanne, I tend to go to a place many times to walk, explore, and paint – building layers of association. These places become a part of me and the paintings, my expressions.
These works are selections from bodies of work done over the past ten years at the Julia and David White Artists’ Colony in Costa Rica, the Jentel Foundation in Wyoming, Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, the Withlacoochee River, and the Millay Colony in Austerlitz, New York. Also included are images from a train while traveling across North Dakota, Montana, and Washington.
