The healing power of art was evident to me long before the concept was popularized. My self-directed art education and practice began at an early age out of my need to find safe refuge and distraction from the domestic violence that frequently occurred in our home.
Agrarian landscapes and culture are a central theme in the visual art that I create. Landscapes are simplified with haphazard paint events that lend an improvisational element to the work as the image develops in a spontaneous kind of way. I attempt to convey what I see and feel into a compelling image that honors the nature and spirit of a subjects place.
