About My Work

'Man is an animal, which, alone amongthe animals, refuses to be satisfied by the fulfillment of animal desires.' -Alexander G Bell

 I am interested in working through an image whilst in the process of painting on a surface.  The first objects of the image are scenes from nature: trees, mountains and animals.  The scene slowly fills with solid shapes and perfect lines; objects of human conception.  I am showing the act of contemplation as man slowly imparts his development over and around the established nature.  What remains in the end is an image exhibiting tension between man and nature, a scene wherethe two are wrapped up in a chaotic commotion.

  I use a broad array of mediums to create a painting, but I prefer watercolor and gouache on paper.  In my paintings, watercolor is used to create faded landscapes, while gouache is used as the foreground medium, so I can push line and color.  When combined, my images become vibrant displays of graphic subjects existing in a dream state.  

 In my painting titled ‘Cloud Dancer’ I have displayed a heron landing on a bulging mass of abstracted shapes.  The idea is to innocently interact elements of nature with the new, intangible onset of human growth.  I want the viewer to cringe when he or she sees a natural element close to its demise while new, artificial growth overshadows the landscape.
