The deeper I go into the forest, the closer I feel to the truth. I love to hike for hours to find a place where there are no trails, no signs, and no noise. Those places are where I contemplate and refine my paintings.
When it’s foggy, I see everything more clearly. In the misty Northwest, where the mystery of existence is all around me, the environment invites me to dream out loud.
My studio is an “alchemy” laboratory, where I transform smears of color into ideas. There, a blank canvas can be compelled to share thoughts about who we are and our connection to the natural world, the universe, and each other.
