My landscape paintings are active contemplations of natural forms. Circles, triangles, squiggles all become a language I use to describe the landscape.  I am interested in presenting a (mostly) optimistic vision of the future, one where renewable energy sources – solar, nuclear, wind, hydropower – have become an accepted presence in the rural landscape. 

I paint on unstretched canvas, its appearance suits my style and it allows me to paint on a large imposing scale. One of the main benefits of presenting this work is its flexibility. The nature of unstretched work
