I am an abstract painter inspired by the natural environment. I walk outside my studio to absorb southern Indiana’s splendor and express it in my works. I develop a palate and use color in a conversation with the canvas. Layering evokes the play of light off plants and objects. Brushwork also conveys a sense of movement and suggests the sounds of nature as well as the harmonies and dissonant tones in music. Painting more than two works at a time creates a narrative for the ensemble, but I complete each one to stand on its own, with surface gestures defining a sub-plot for each work.Bio
