Artist Statement


My work is fueled by a lifelong obsession with color and awe at the monstrous complexity of the natural world. For the last several years I have lived and painted in rural Maryland. I am in love with the weather, the crops, the light, the dirt, the weeds. I am especially interested in the places where people's plans for the landscape collide with the riot of life that is there to begin with. Plants have an agenda of their own. I like the silliness, the frailty, the vanity of the human marks. I like the tornado of forces at work in nature. There is so much more going on than we can say.
