My art begins with travel. I'm interested in that empty space outside my authomobile or airplane window. I look out there at the sand, sage, mountains, hills and such, and I wonder how to express the connection to the human spirit that I see out there.
I paint places without much in the way of human intervention. Sometimes I just paint sage, creosote, pine or juniper. Sometimes I paint scraps of small towns or roads winding through small communitites. For me, it's all about isolation, solitude, and finding clarity.
