Biography

I have dealt with the landscape as it exists in nature, used elements within the landscape which set up barriers for change, played with creating imaginary, surreal landscapes by juxtaposing fruit and vegetables into real and ambiguous spaces, and most recently used the whimsical qualities of animals within the landscape.

In all of my work, I am intrigued with the relationships between landscape, color, and space. Recently, my aim is to merge imagery of the real and unreal, the romantic and the dramatic. Two concepts reflected in my work are the need to accept things as they are, and the need to dream. The more my work evolves the more complex it becomes. I compete with myself to find new and challenging solutions to the painted composition.
