My paintings for the last 10 years generally fall into two bodies of work. The first stems from an interest in the complex ecosystems found in the southeast. The resulting paintings are compositions involve some drawing skill, and creating illusions of light and atmosphere while solving structural issues of balance, movement, texture, etc. I see the painting process as an opportunity to make visible the ideas, based on the natural world, that take shape in my mind.
The second body of work is more narrative. Where there are indications of the human presence, a story will develop around lawn sculptures, chickens, or icebergs. The topic is limitless, and the sense of a planet in crisis is always present.
