Shifting Perspectives

Artist Statement:

“Making art is an expression of who I am and an exploration of how I perceive the world. Growing up in the Northwood’s of Wisconsin instilled in me a sense of awe for the natural world. In my later teens, I began to study meditation, which made me interested in the actual process of how I see the world. As a painter, I try to capture the momentary experience of moving through the landscape. My paintings show multiple viewpoints simultaneously, giving the viewer an overall impression of a place. I work on site initially and finish my paintings in the studio with the aid of photos, my imagination and memory. For me, painting is about my curiosity and delight in both the landscape and the process by which I experience it.”
