My work is about the beauty of paint as a medium and the exploration of color and space through the painting process.

Most of my paintings are inspired by my experiences with specific places that have left significant impressions. I'm particularly inspired by landscapes and landforms with architectural qualities such as those of the Colorado Plateau where I live.

Other paintings have their source in landscapes with timeless, sacred associations such those that are inspired by my travels in Italy, England and Scotland.

My approach to painting is very improvisational and is influenced by jazz. I begin with a compositional essence that serves as a point of departure for exploring color, harmony, rhythm, pictorial space, and surface quality.
