Artist Statement

Remote Places. Vast, boundless places. Places where one sees an endless horizon or where the sky and the land become one. Places where one can see the push, thrust and power inherent in the land. Places where one can almost see infinitely. My reaction to these places lingers in my thoughts and in my art.

I feel fortunate that I can visit these remote and isolated areas, study the dynamics of what stands before me and use my knowledge of the elements of art to construct a composition that represents my consciousness, experience, and understanding of the value and essence of the place.
