I explore how color and light affect space and the physical sense of place. For me Atmospheric Conditions are more than weather conditions, they elicit a personal response to the landscape. The setting of my work may be abstracted landscapes, but the root of my work is an emotional reaction to the environment. My paintings are based on nature, fashioned from memory and imagination, and imply landscapes not necessarily seen, but felt. I dissolve the landscape, leaving only what I consider to be the essence of nature. I hope to draw the viewer to the light and colors that radiate from the canvas and give them pause.
