"It's good to have an end to journey toward, but it's the journey that matters, in the end." Ursula K. LeGuin
In my work I aim to evoke a sense of place, but not a specific place, an emotion but not a specific emotion. The images relate loosely to the landscape and mainly come from meditation, the dream state and random acts of chance. The history of each image is pushed by incorporating a saturated pallet of thick paint, transparent layering of media, and techniques that distress the surface. I am in a very real sense sculpting each image. Building layer upon layer, as we build upon our life experiences. What is underneath the exterior is just as important as what is readily and immediately seen.
