"I see landscape in all types of surface. I tend to isolate small portion of these and then expand upon the minutia to fill my pieces. Life in transformation, with inevitable growth, deterioration and regeneration are articulated as seasons and situations pass. Working with several layers of color on a deeply etched or hammered surface I attempt to narrow the line between delicacy and durability. My intention is to convey a visual impression of fragility grounded in the inherent strength of materials used."
