To me, color is beloved, and each piece of earth stands by waiting to be seen and interpreted. I do my best to walk quietly through it with simple ambitions; and I do my best to notice. Painting provides me a way to catch conversations in color. Painting provides a way to preserve the earth.
I have spent time in and draw from the landscapes of Minnesota, South Dakota, North Carolina, and California; though I often rely on imaginations of those places to fill in my work.
