"Having grown up in an extended family of printmakers, sculptors & painters, I have always been drawn to line, color, edges and boundaries. I am fascinated by the horizon line and its relationship between land, water and sky, there is a constant tension & balance that intrigues me.
My goal for my images is to try & capture that essence of memory through balance & sense of place with as few marks as possible. I find solace in landscape and open space and am intrigued by mans’ relationship to the land both historically and at present. After living in the Pacific NW for eight years, I continue to be deeply influenced by the west’s open vistas."
