Simple compositions can serve as analogies for meditation on nature and the human experience. I enjoy seeking out abstract passages that have a solid foundation in nature. Larger works can force the viewer to enter an environment, and often demand their participation. Smaller pieces seek further investigation.
My newest work is a metaphor for life on the tip of southern California. There is a tenacity to these spaces that require a certain level of acceptance and hopeful expectation. I find it fascinating to investigate how we adapt to our surroundings. I practice mark-making to better understand my place in the world.
