Meet the artist

The art I create is all about observation. It starts with a decision to notice myself being in a place, and deciding to stop and see it. Sometimes these places are large, cavernous rock outcroppings that I’ve been hiking along all day, and I pause to breathe it all in. They can be ocean coasts or exotic locations I’ve been lucky enough to explore. Other times, it is a surprisingly small place that fits in the palm of my hand, which I have noticed and stared at for (probably) way too long. Observation of the visual world is what feeds my inspiration to create a painting.

More often than not, I will make my work with oil paint. It is a forgiving and enjoyable medium that lends itself to the widest array of possible color choices, and a variety of textures and subjects. What began with an obsession with rocks, finding hues of green and purple within sandstone and shale, has evolved. Now I apply my keen observations of color and form to elements like water, sky, people, and plants. It is most enjoyable for me to work large scale, so I can convey the impression I receive from scenes of Lake Erie, the Pacific Ocean, a volcano or something else impactful. However, I’ve learned that more people are likely to have space for a smaller painting, and I’ve begun to explore that more recently.

Other mediums that lend themselves to my work are watercolor and ceramic. I find that the color possibilities in watercolor and the way the medium interacts with itself, are relatable to oil. However, it does offer a more approachable scale, and seems to carry less pressure in the piece than an oil painting. I enjoy leaning into watercolor work in between my regular paintings. Ceramic art satisfies my desire to be messy and to connect with the earth through my hands. The art I create on the pottery wheel explores glaze combinations that are informed by nature, and an essence of exploration when I incorporate glass into my pieces. I love to experiment and often do not make the same piece more than once.
