Oil & Pastel
Making art has always been a dialogue between myself and the emerging image. Most recently the source
of that give-and-take has been the natural world as it’s an endless source for the imagination. The vision
may be in growth or decay or its own awe-inspiring majesty. Generally I work from observation, memory
or in-the-field photos. Beginning with drawings I try to establish the groundwork—as well as a rhythm—
leading to a finished piece. In the process I try to balance shape, light and shadow, negative and positive
space as well as their relationship to each other.
