. . . Nature dictates my style, mood, medium, and composition
The more time I spend in the wilderness, the more I realize its subtle effects on feelings which evolve with ever visit, place, and season. I am captured by the paradox of strength and delicacy, and opposition of color found in every ordinary event. Nature dictates my style, mood, medium, and composition, and my paintings reflect this diversity. I challenge the popular tendency to minimalize painting style. The greatest respect due to nature is through representation in an elaborate and personal style because it is the result of a "felt" experience.
