The paintings reference the natural world. Images are abstracted and recombined to convey the patterns, rhythms and underlying forces inherent in our immediate environment. They merge an idea of place with a sense of memory and existence and address loss of nature relative to losses of memory, people, and place.

In alteration of colors, forms and perspectives, and through multiple transparent glazes, the paintings evoke an alternative universe in which connections are made between memories and experience, between time and place, and between imagined space and physical existence.
