Statement - "My work is inspired by the landscape. I use memories of landscapes seen in my travels and the landscape directly visible beyond my studio door - a wild marsh with a tidal river. I am compelled to paint the constantly changing light and high tides which regularly flood reflecting Brilliant sunrises, pale winter landscapes or mid-summer’s lush emerald greens.
The recent works reveal a new perspective on the landscape, traditional horizons have have given way to a freer compositional element. A sense of cubist geometry articulates the work; colors have become flattened and patterns discrete. The work has come away from the edges of the canvas and has its own deliberate contours framed by a neutral or deep color."
