I am interested in the event of painting. The informative process which unfolds as a painting evolves, is a constant curiosity. My intention is to let go of formulations and ideologies in order to gain access to work that is inspired by, and reflecting, the aliveness of nature. Properties of paint, color, mark making, and their relationships direct me in the process; each layer of additional color and shape brings new interactions. As these relationships expand, each painting develops in its own direction. I am awed by the raw beauty, the drama, and the silence of untamed places. Since I am an inseparable part of this British Columbia landscape, these majestic mountains are a vital part of my work.
