Dreams, travel, science, and ideas all influence my art. I’m inspired by the beauty and power of nature – by trees, animals, rocks, and flowers – and by nature’s inherent domination over civilization through geological and physical forces, and chemical and energetic processes.
As all things change over time, growing, disintegrating, and yielding to new forms, civilizations also dissolve, and new habitats emerge as pristine nature. My paintings contain metaphors for this impermanence, and for the interconnectedness of all that exists.
I’m happy when others find their own stories, ideas, and dreams reflected in my paintings, and when my images contribute to viewers’ ways of thinking and feeling about our shared experience, our connection to each other, and to ecosystems.
