DESCRIPTION

I've always been drawn to water, its colors and textures, its shapes and sounds; from the roar of the ocean to the bright tranquility of a sun-sparkled creek, from the rush of rainstorm to the seeming endlessness of a quiet sea. Its light and dark, its tranquil beauty and its mysterious depths. Its ability to take me to the stillness within, to ancient memory and half-remembered visions, from which my paintings emerge.

These pieces emerge from both external, visual inspirations and the internal, mystical stimuli deep within. The surfaces are rich with the colors of the lush watery beauty found in the Pacific Northwest where I make my home. The wet grays and blues of the water and rain surround me and inspire me and permeate my being.

I express not specific physical landscapes/seascapes in my paintings, but rather a mystical geography, reminiscent of the seas and stars and the stillness of those depths. And like time spent at the water's edge, my work invites a response in kind - a deep observation and introspection.

I invite you to take your time at the water's edge, look closely, breathe slowly, and let yourself be drawn into your depths.
