About The Artwork

My effort in the studio is not so much about the objects “out there” as the mystery of a living, mutual exploration. It’s not only that I am exploring nature, but that nature is exploring me. Over time, I’ve come to regard the landscape image as an integral part of myself—a form that is also a spirit, a resonating presence that connects inner nature with outer nature. As such, I regard this work to a certain extent as self-portrait, expressing such opposing forces in psychological development as death and growth, threat and safety, loneliness and relationship.

Hi, Thanks for taking a look at my work. I'm a painter/printmaker with forty years of professional studio experience. I focus on landscape and natural form as a metaphor for my own psychological investigations and growth. Over time, I’ve come to regard the landscape image as an integral part of myself—a form that is also a spirit, a resonating presence that connects inner nature with outer nature. As such, I regard this work to a certain extent as self-portrait, expressing such opposing forces in psychological development as death and growth, threat and safety, loneliness and relationship. As a meditative image the landscape in form and energy has at the same time taken on a life of its own. As I follow the will of each image and sustain the unknown long enough for a new manifestation to appear, the natural image articulates the singular inner experience resulting from each encounter. Over time, nature and its uncanny ability to transform articulates for me the underlying experiences that evolve out of lifelong devotion to creative work. Over the years I've exhibited widely and built an extensive worldwide collections history that includes museums, university, corporate and private collections. I hope you enjoy viewing my work.
