"My work is inspired by the rugged beauty and fragility of nature. I am attracted to the dramatic play of light and shadow on rocky cliffs, the swirling patterns of rushing waterfalls, and the translucent colors in partially frozen ice along the river’s edge. I frequently ski and hike with my sketchbook in tow so that I may draw a particular view. Back in my studio, I am often influenced by the sensitivity and directness of Japanese and Chinese sumi paintings as I create new pieces from my nature studies.
