My fundamental need to connect with nature prompts me to paint the natural world. Man’s increasing urbanization urges me to create images in which people and nature peacefully coexist. The intent of my currant body of work is to capture man’s introspective place in the natural environment; in spaces where our human footprint sits quietly. No matter the locale, I am often most drawn to the play of light upon these landscapes. My best works have a strong sense of place and atmosphere, as determined by time of day, season and emotional impression.
