I am working exclusively with landscape imagery in my paintings and drawings. I seek out natural subjects that emanate a strong unique feeling. It could be an unusual color or shape, a personified form, or a space that takes on an unexpected symmetry. I discover these moments in forests as I'm walking or on the side of the road as I'm driving. I like the experience of having images rear up in my peripheral vision and demand making.
